Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Nawab Faizunnesa's Rupjalal contains the Table of Contents and the Acknowledgements. The aim of the book is to rectify history's neglect of Nawab Faizunnesa, a pioneer Muslim woman in colonial India. It explores the socio-cultural context that has inspired a Muslim woman to write about female sexuality, interpreting Faizunnesa's "frank sexuality" as the most crucial aspect of her text that points, even if indirectly, at the complicated discourse of sexuality in a religiously specific yet culturally hybrid world of Muslims in colonial Bengal.

Keywords: colonial Bengal; Muslim women; Nawab Faizunnesa; Rupjalal
