The white women, or memsahibs, who visited or lived in British India in the 19th and 20th centuries, wrote novels, letters, short stories, memoirs, and travelogues; these women were also the subject of writings in colonial and postcolonial times. This volume contains eight contributed chapters examining both types of "gaze." Roye (English, Delaware State U.) and Mittapalli (English, Kakatiya U., India) have arranged contributions in sections on the range of memsahib's writings, her fiction, colonial sahib's depictions of the memsahib, and postcolonial perspectives.
