Taking dowry as a crucial index for women`s status, Ranjana Sheel locates it within a broad historical framework and a feminist perspective viewing it not as a static custom but as a product of changing political, economic, and social processes to comprehend its present shape as well as its various dimensions. In doing so, the study raises the questions: How integral was dowry to the ancient prevalent marriage forms? How far was it legitimized by a tradition or traditions? What were its linkages with property and inheritance structures? And, how did it become so pervasive over time?The author examines the above questions in depth and skilfully links complex historical developments with the entrenchment of dowry practices in modern India.
