India Dishonoured: Behind a nation's war on women &hellip by Sunny Hundal
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
This short essay - almost an article - covers the subject matter in a broad and not particularly deep manner.

It highlights some sociological roots of violence against women, for example dowry payments and sex-selection during pregnancy (with preference for boys).

The problems associated with honour are briefly touched upon.

The thing that strikes the reader most is the institutional nature of anti-female prejudice. Several accounts relate how victims must work hard even to get their crimes registered by the police, and the lack of professionalism by the police and local governments in relation to this issue.

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler
Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler

A good political read, very interesting to hear Hitler's rationale contemporaneously. Two things bother me about this book. The edition itself is not the best edited, a few spelling mistakes here and there, frequent enough to be noticable. Second,the back of the book, which sells Hitler as an "evil genius" or "monster". Mein Kampf has its own merits and logic. It is counter-productive to dismiss the book as worthless. Hitler was not a monster, he was a human, and reading this book helps you understand how people are able to act like monsters. Censorship of literature is a hallmark of fascist states, and I think its a shame that there is in some quarters consent that the content of the book… Read more
