Sundeep Prakashan, 2000. First edition. Hardcover. New. 23 x 29 cm. This book is of interest not only to those students cum scholars interested in philosophy but to any layman interested in the theory of historical interpretation, in cyclic theories of history, or in values within our own culture. It also gives an interesting account about Hegal`s metaphysical treatises and illustrations drawn from history. His basic principle of thought i.e., that history is not meaningless change, but a rational process the realization of the spirit of freedom is clearly revealed in this book. It also deals about the modern ideals of history which grow up right from the periods of Heradotus to the modern times, consists brief information about historical method and progress, including Hegel`s anticipatory prophecy to our own spiritual-political-social situation. The students of history must have adequate knowledge of philosophy if he wants to understand the problems of his discipline. This book is an introduction to the philosophy of history wherein historians have made their professional business to study it in an abstract form. It is obviously a kind of inquiry into a certain kind of historical thought, often mentioned as speculative and critical. The former seeks to discover in history, the course of events, a pattern of meaning which lies beyond the historian`s perception and the latter strives to dig the nature of historians self inquiry for location purpose. This text book has been written on a critical angles for unraveling the specific problems connected with the name philosophy of history. Modern philosophers of history have much stated their views on the philosophy of Science. For instance, Maurice Mandelbaum`s terms like material and Formal are also Commonly used to distinguish two kinds of `Philosophy of history`.

"Contentious Traditions" analyzes the debate on sati, or widow burning, in colonial India. Though the prohibition of widow burning in 1829 was heralded as a key step forward for women's emancipation in modern India, Lata Mani argues that the women who were burned were marginal to the debate and that the controversy was over definitions of Hindu tradition, the place of ritual in religious worship, the civilizing missions of colonialism and evangelism, and the proper role of the colonial state. Mani radically revises colonialist as well as nationalist historiography on the social reform of women's status in the colonial period and clarifies the complex and contradictory character of missionary writings on India. The history of widow burning is one of paradox. While the chief players in the debate argued over the religious basis of sati and the fine points of scriptural interpretation, the testimonials of women at the funeral pyres consistently addressed, the material hardships and societal expectations attached to widowhood. And although historiography has traditionally emphasized the colonial horror of sati, a fascinated ambivalence toward the practice suffused official discussions.The debate normalized the violence of sati and supported the misconception that it was a voluntary act of wifely devotion. Mani brilliantly illustrates how situated feminism and discourse analysis compel a rewriting of history, thus destabilizing the ways we are accustomed to look at women and men, at 'tradition', custom, and modernity. ., University of California Press., 1998.

Details of the book
Contentious Traditions: The Debate on Sati in Colonial India

"An important and disturbing book. Lata Mani has reopened the archives on widow burning in colonial India. Her meticulous reading of contemporary texts . . . is exemplary for its conceptual sophistication. Unsettling and illuminating, this is feminist scholarship at its best."--Ranajit Guha, founding editor "Subaltern Studies"Mani's argument that the terms 'tradition' and 'modernity' are inscribed and reinscribed in the bodies of colonized women has forever changed our understandings of patriarchy, nationalism, and colonialism, and indeed redefined the conditions for 'knowing' with respect to these contexts."--Lisa Lowe, author of "Immigration Acts"Lata Mani's brilliant and persuasive analysis of official, native and missionary writings on "sati in colonial India makes for a new beginning in contemporary analysis of colonial discourse.This is the book that many have waited for. A landmark publication in several fields at once: modern South Asian history, feminist critiques of colonial discourse, and cultural studies."--Dipesh Chakrabarty, University of Chicago
