Abstract

Gender Mainstreaming in Politics, Administration and Development in South
Asia edited by Ishtiaq Jamil, Salahuddin M. Aminuzzaman, Syeda Lasna Kabir,
Mahfuzul Haque and published by Palgrave Macmillan is a book that has all the
makings of one of those volumes that is going to be cited in all future writing
on the themes of gender mainstreaming and development in South Asia in
particular, but also within the larger arena of South Asian politics as well as
feminist politics. Te book represents the best of South Asian scholarship on
the region – in the sense that it is collaborative and seeks to address thematic
issues that are while being circumscribed by the nation-state also able to
sidestep the frame of the nation state. Politics in South Asia is characterized
by an overwhelming presence of the nation-state, this makes the possibility of
discerning thematic overlaps and continuities very difcult. It is in this context
that a book such as this should be welcomed.
