Dangerous Outcast traces prostitution in Bengal from precolonial times through the arrival of the British, examining how the profession was reordered to suit British desires. Drawing on nineteenth-century popular and folk culture, Sumanta Banerjee also makes impressive use of both standard archival records and a surprisingly substantial body of writing by prostitutes themselves, including voices often cast out of the historical record.
