Product Description: A fascinating tale of four generations of English women who lived in India and Burma during the Raj. Daughters of the Empire is a rich and textured social narrative of the time. Based on an extensive collection of letters, diaries and photographs, it gives us remarkable insights into the livesof Iris, her mother Violet, grandmother Annie, as well as various aunts and great-aunts. Iris Macfarlane came to India in 1939 and stayed for nearly three decades. She returned in 1996 after a gap of almost thirty years, and the visit led her to reflect on the lives of her female forebearsaefrom hergreat-grandmother's recollections of mid-nineteenth-century India and the Uprising of 1857, to her own as a tea-planter's wife. For anyone interested in the social history of the British empire and its colonies - particularly India and Burma (Myanmar), or of imperial missions in general, this deeplymoving and brilliantly written account will reveal a world which is familiar, yet strange. Few people could tell the story like Macfarlane. Her account is reflective yet analytical, astute and critical, both of herself and of the wider colonial world in which her family lived and worked. Anenlightening introduction by Susan Bayly puts Macfarlane's account in a wider frame, analysing earlier writings on families of empires and how they were used to defend and legitimise colonial rule.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
