In two of India's major cities, there are centers for women's studies. Thus far, they are research centers and places where growing library collections allow them to be of use to scholars and to teachers interested in changing their curriculum. Both of these centers would be grateful to U.S. scholars, women's studies centers , publishers, and libraries willing to share their resources and to send copies of books, articles, or pamphlets to India. In the annotations that follow, the address of each center precedes a brief description of its projects and list of its publications, all of which are recommended as very useful to understanding both the current status of Indian women and the emphases of feminist scholars. In addition, two other books are especially useful. Professor Neera Desai's Woman in Modern India (Vora & Co., Publishers, Pvt. Ltd., 3 Round Building, Kalbadevi Road, Bombay 2) was published first in 1957 and reissued in 1977.
