Product description


The book combines fine grained empirical research with considerable conceptual acumen and penetrating analysis. Megha Kumar has taken on a particularly difficult theme to write about and she writes with great honesty and meticulous scholarship. --Tanika Sarkar, Retired Professor of History, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi

This book makes it clear that social scientists can approach analytically the question of sexual violence at the time of communal conflicts. --Christophe Jaffrelot, Senior Research fellow at CERI-Sciences Po/CNRS Professor of Indian Politics and Sociology, King's College London

This is a gripping and, unfortunately, apparently accurate account of the largely hidden and silently tolerated victimization of mostly Muslim women and men by a vast segment of Indian society that, for the most part, turns a blind eye to it. --Paul R. Brass, Professor Emeritus of Political Science and South Asian Studies, University of Washington, Seattle Washington
