Edited by Dr. Mohini Giri
Gyan Publishing House
New Delhi, India pp.259, Index
Living Death: Trauma of Widowhood in India is a unique and profound collection documenting the many aspects of severe and horrific discrimination against widows in India. If not facing literal death through the custom of Sati, widows in India are subjected to a living death in which they are deprived of basic human dignities on all fronts. The contributors to this volume are social scientists who have devoted their lives to the cause of women and children. The articles are both scholarly and passionate. Not only does this work bring much needed focus to an understanding of the tragic status of the widow in India; it brings to our attention the dire need for continuing work on behalf of women and children's rights by all of us. This book is important reading for all who are concerned with human rights and the rights of women around the world.
