This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book examines the three separate modes by which gender and the imperial politics of British India were intertwined during the period of intense scrutiny and debate about the future of the Raj. It also examines the marriage and the home in the political life of the Raj. The book analyses the discourses and practices of violence that came increasingly to the forefront of British imperial politics. It discusses how Anglo-Indian women situated themselves, both practically and ideologically, in relation to the discourses and the actuality of violence in the empire. The book evaluates the 'race' and its interactions with ideas of gender and imperial politics. It also analyses how Anglo-Indian women resisted the devolution of political power to Indian men.
