The Postcolonial Careers of Santha Rama Rau (Next Wave: New Directions in Women's Studies) Paperback – September 26, 2007
From the Back Cover
"In "The Postcolonial Careers of Santha Rama Rau," Antoinette Burton produces a notably intelligent and counterintuitive reading of the forgotten and/or trivialized genealogies of colonial/postcolonial cosmopolitanism. Focusing on the career of a putatively minor writer with a complex relationship to the project of decolonization, Cold War politics, U.S. civil rights movements, and corporate publishing, Burton re-inflects the ways we have been accustomed to thinking about gendered professionalism, celebrity status, minoritization, and the history of postcolonial theory. What is most impressive is the way that she manages to make something densely textured and timely out of materials that might otherwise be relegated to antiquarian interest alone."--Parama Roy, author of "Indian Traffic: Identities in Question in Colonial and Postcolonial India"

Sections on her memoir, Home to India, which is one of the best of that genre, IMHO, her work in bringing EM Forster's A Passage to India to the stage and moveies, and finally fun and games with Time/Life, the playground of that Cold Warrior Henry Luce! SRR's choice of illuminating her Kashmiiri grandmother's kitchen and her Bombay grandmother's kitchen, brilliant. I'll have to read both books once more to get the full picture of this writer at work.
