He maps sexuality in India along Foucault’s schema, characterizing it as a system of alliances, even quoting Foucault’s description directly: “a system of rules defining the permitted and forbidden, the licit and the illicit” (46). In a similar vein, Nair (1996a, 1996b) claims that the shift from the system of alliances that Foucault details in the case of Europe did not occur in the t h e co lo n i a l s tat e , l aw, a n d s e x ua l i t y 21 case of colonial India. She links the decisive changes in Europe to the rise of individualism, which the colonial economy did not engender, subordinated as it was to the metropolitan economy.

FEMINIST INITIATIVES: CRITIQUING LEGAL DICHOTOMIES Much feminist attention has been focused on the slew of laws passed in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that reformed women’s status. Scholars such as Chakravarti (1998) question colonial historians’ assumption that the state served a new ordering and rationalizing function. Chakravarti instead asserts that even in precolonial times, a rational structure of caste law existed, held together by the state. Countering historians who characterize the precolonial period as one with a multiplicity of caste laws with no fixed Hindu law, she argues that “discrete caste laws functioned within an overarching conceptualization” (1998, 186).

Guha (1997) finds that the power of colonial law lay in the abstractions it generated: it took real historical figures and events and placed them outside history, by translating them into a discourse expressing the will of an omnipresent state. Guha terms this t h e co lo n i a l s tat e , l aw, a n d s e x ua l i t y 7 discourse a kind of appropriation, as it erased the perspectives that situated historical experience within the life of a community. On a social scale, the attempt at “rule of law” reflected a general urge to order, to imprint an ethos of abstract principles, and a new, less familiar, language of authority.
