Sati - Widow Burning in India

Sati - Widow Burning in India Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sati--the burning of a widow on her husband's funeral pyre--has for centuries been one of the few ways in which women of India could achieve renown, respect, and even deification. This eye-opening work exposes what this still persistent ritual (officially outlawed in 1829) reveals about this society and about the women who choose or are forced to become sati. 8-page insert.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references and index.
