Description

In the 1880s, Pandita Ramabai traveled from India to England and on to the United States, where she spent three years immersed in the milieu of social reform movements of the day. This book originally titled The Peoples of the United States is Pandita Ramabai's response to and critique of American life, including the country's government, economy, education and domestic life. As an account of Western society by an early Indian feminist, this is a major text which reverses the established equation of male, Orientalist travel narratives.

A critical introduction and extensive notes are also part of Professor Kosambi's pioneering English edition.
