This work shows how the gender structure of Indian society shaped the experience of love in the 19th and 20th centuries. The unique quality of this experience derived from the persistence of caste despite the rise of a new romantic mentality. It is demonstrated that an unsuspected sexual formation of society determined emotional history. The book should be suitable for scholars and students of modern Indian history, sociology, gender studies and literature.
