More information about the reading agenda: For June, read Caste through to the end of Chapter 13 (202 pages), then for July read the balance (approximately 195 pages, not including the 55 pages of notes and bibliography). We will take a bit more detailed look at the book’s arguments section by section since most of us will find both new concepts and new history here.
