Abstract

Sinha argues that the emerging dynamics between colonial and nationalist politics in the 1880s and 1890s in India is best captured in the logic of colonial masculinity, and it traces the impact of colonial masculinity in four controversies: the "white mutiny" against the Ilbert Bill in 1883; the official government response to the Native Volunteer movement in 1885; the recommendations of the Public Service Commission of 1886; and the Indian opposition to the Age of Consent Bill in 1891.
