Product description

Review

"Nayanika Mookherjee's research is important as a testimonial, a guide, and as a recovery of the individual experiences of those raped in 1971." -- Maitreyi * Dhaka Tribune * "Engaging and lucidly written, The Spectral Wound raises a host of theoretical and ethical considerations. How might we re-conceptualize the experience of wartime rape without reducing survivor subjectivities to their "wounds?" To whom is the feminist activist accountable? . . . This thoughtful and provocative text calls on the reader to revisit such dilemmas instead of taking the answers for granted." -- Dina M. Siddiqi * International Feminist Journal of Politics * "Critical, reflective, and transformative to our understanding of gender violence, memory, and recuperation, Mookherjee's extraordinary ethnography is undoubtedly essential reading for scholars and students of feminist theory, anthropology, Bangladesh, and South Asia studies." -- Elora Halim Chowdhury * Journal of Asian Studies * "[Mookherjee] asks, `What would it mean for the politics of identifying wartime rape if we were to highlight how the raped woman folds the experience of sexual violence into her daily socialities, rather than identifying her as a horrific wound?' That is the central question of this powerful and perceptive book." -- Michael Lambek * Journal of Royal Anthropological Institute * "Mookerjee's exemplary and closely argued The Spectral Wound highlights the central conundrum of making wartime rapes public: heroism, implied and acknowledged by the designation birangona, can only be acquired by making your shame public....[An] uncommonly complex and delicately observed study..." -- Ritu Menon * Women's Review of Books * "It is a pleasure to review books that offer an innovative reading of important areas of recent scholarship. Nayanika Mookherjee's book throws an epistemic challenge to previous authors and interpretations on the subject." -- Rachana Chakraborty * Social History * "The Spectral Wound is an exceptional book. It has thoroughly explored its subject from every conceivable angle in such a way as to give it a real intellectual richness." -- Nardina Kaur * Economic & Political Weekly *
