Reviews

"From victims and perpetrators, women and men, Yasmin Saikia has gathered first-person accounts of the gendered violence of the 1971 Bangladesh war of independence. No one else has met this challenge, and few will be able to think about the future of South Asia without reference to her extraordinary account, which is at once bold and evocative, clearheaded and hopeful." Bruce Lawrence, co-editor of On Violence: A Reader "This outstanding book offers an entirely new perspective on the dynamics of the Bangladesh War of 1971, focusing on the memories of Bangladeshi women. Full of pathos, it is an indictment of societies indifferent to women's suffering, even when women become targets of violence. It will be welcomed by readers interested in genocide, women's issues, political violence, and especially by those South Asians who witnessed the horrors of 1971 firsthand." Rafiuddin Ahmed, author of Religion, Identity, and Politics: Essays on Bangladesh
