Product description


Ester Gallo has given a wonderfully nuanced, beautifully written, and innovative account of kinship, memory, and class in India. This is not only a major contribution to scholarship on class, it will be an important point of reference in the study of kinship and memory more widely.' (Janet Carsten, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom)

This fascinating study challenges easy assumptions about the role of the past in the present and emphasizes the role of kinship studies as part of the analysis of class formation in South Asia and beyond. (Henrike Donner, Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom)

A completely novel approach to understanding middle classes in modern India, at the intersections of caste, kinship, and mobility! An exceptional anthropological study and fascinating read. (Meenakshi Thapan, Department of Sociology, Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi, India)
