"The present volume is the first work to focus on 'reform' as a disputed concept. It retraces some of the critical contestations around the phenomenon of reform as it affected the largest community of British India - the Hindus. The essays in this volume, the fourth in the Debates in Indian History and Society series, identify major issues within the history of socio-religious reform among Hindus that grew into passionate public debates."

It will also engage informed general readers interested in the discussion that continues to surround reform among Hindus.
