In the Club : Associational Life in Colonial South Asia, Hardback Book

In the Club : Associational Life in Colonial South Asia Hardback

Part of the Studies in Imperialism series


In the club presents a comprehensive examination of social clubs across South Asia, arguing for clubs as key contributors to South Asia's colonial associational life and civil society.

Using government records, personal memoirs, private club records, and club histories themselves, In the club explores colonial club life with chapters arranged thematically: the legal underpinnings of clubs; their physical locations and compositions; their financial health; the role of servants and staff as employees of clubs; issues of race and class in clubs; women's clubs; and finally clubs in their postcolonial milieus.

This book will be critical reading for scholars of South Asia, graduate students, and intellectually engaged club members alike. -- .
