The Dalits of India are downtrodden out-castes, constituting 17 per cent of the Indian population. However, thanks partly to the mass movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, they are comprised largely of those of the Christian faith. As a result of a sabbatical journey to India and Pakistan, David Haslam offers a sympathetic outsider's glimpse into India's caste system and the liberation struggle of the Dalits. Comparison is made between casteism and racism and the Church is called upon to play its part in overcoming caste oppression across India.

Examining the crucial linkages between caste and gender, undertaken, perhaps, for the first time, Uma Chakravarti unmasks the mystique of consensus in the workings of the caste system to reveal the underlying violence and coercion that perpetuate a severely hierarchical and unequal society. The subordination of women and the control of female sexuality are crucial to the maintenance of the caste system, creating what feminist scholars have termed brahmanical patriarchy. She discusses the range of patriarchal practices within the larger framework of sexuality, labour and access to material resources, and also focuses on the centrality of endogamous marriages that maintain the system. Erudite yet accessible, this book enables the reader to understand the interface of gender and caste and to participate in its critical analysis.
