Civilizing Women:
British Crusades in Colonial Sudan
Janice Boddy

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This very well-written book marks the first sustained attempt to look at gender in the Sudanese historical record and to ground the history of Condominium rule in a broader cultural framework."--Susan M. Kenyon, author of Five Women of Sennar: Culture and Change in Central Sudan

"Engaging and detailed, Civilizing Women creates a lively picture of events, places, people. Scholars interested in the Sudan, as well as colonial Africa more generally, will find this work invaluable. Janice Boddy sets a new standard for colonial studies by anthropologists--she seems to have combed every inch of the archives in both the United Kingdom and Sudan, and the material comes to life through her artful prose."--Lesley A. Sharp, author of The Sacrificed Generation: Youth, History, and the Colonized Mind in Madagascar
