Explores what Western women did, thought, and felt about the colonies in Africa and India, areas that have been presented, both at the time and in subsequent scholarship, as 'no place for a white woman'. This volume analyzes Western women's complicity in, as well as their resistance to, the cultural values dominant during an imperialist era.
