Regulating Prostitution in Late Colonial Bombay

It also challenges linear readings of how laws create effects; in keeping with Foucauldian insights, I assume that prohibitions do not end practices so much as rearrange the relative power of interested actors. In following micropractices of regulation, I am heeding the call of historical sociologists of law such as Mariana Valverde , who remind us that studying the state need not only mean studying exalted national or federal sites but also the more quotidian forms of administrative functioning.

Such a focus on micro practices also opens up a specific perspective on colonial history. While imperial laws and policies were often framed in ways that appeared consistent with social and political currents in metropoles, those who administered and effected policies in colonies were often less committed, and sometimes even opposed, to these currents.

Following the manner in which laws were executed then allows us to understand better the heterogeneity and limits of empire. It allows us to see how laws could be appropriated in unexpected ways by local nationalist elites, and also how colonial government functionaries could undermine the coherence and impact of colonial discourses. This book, then, offers the case of laws on prostitution as an argument for understanding imperial processes as more multifarious, and less orderly, than colonial discourses themselves projected.

It is rare to come across such a delightfully written and insightful book in the rather arid arena of law. While the postcolonial afterlife of colonial prostitution law awaits detailed analysis, this book provides a vital bridge between the Victorian regulationist model and that which the Raj bequeathed to Independent India. An important contribution.

Ashwini Tambe

Codes of Misconduct is a welcome addition to our understanding of the laws related to prostitution in Bombay, and provides a useful backdrop for further enquiry. Tambe reveals an enlightening perspective on state-based violence against Indian prostitutes that was imposed by the police, public health officials and military administrators, based on a review of police files, prison records, and census data over a period of eighty years.
