In The White Woman's Other Burden, Kumari Jayawardena re-evaluates the Western women who lived and worked in South Asia during the period of British rule. She tells the stories of many well-known women, including Katherine Mayo, Helena Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Madeleine Slade, and Mirra Richard and highlights the stories of dozens of women whose names have been forgotten today. In the course of this telling, Jayawardena raises the issues of race, class, and gender which are part of current debates among feminists throughout the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The overall conception behind this book is so rich and Jayawardena's insight...is so valid that the juxtaposition of these women's lives...makes fascinating reading." -- American Historical Review
"...The White Women's Other Burden proposes [new materials and new approaches] so clearly and unambiguously... This substantive, fully realized work calls for our admiration with its lucid narrative style, accessible across disciplines without jargon, presenting rarely told stories that individualize yet do not shirk generalization." -- American Anthropology
