Product description


The aim of the series is to portray multiple trajectories of peace. This volume deals with the various aspects of peace as practised by South Asian women and highlights women’s various roles as visionaries and agents of peace in South Asia…. On the whole, this book is an important resource for those working in the field of peace and conflict.

(Gender, Technology and Development)

Women in Peace Politics is so refreshing to read. The volume does not deal with lofty treatises of governments and game theories that policy-makers love to spin, or claim grand solutions for conflict resolutions. Instead, it challenges the existing notion that the only effective way of dealing with violence — in the name of people’s peace and security — is more violence…. This book is no doubt a contribution to the growing body of significant work on peace politics started in India by feminist author-publishers Ritu Menon, Urvashi Butalia and Rita Manchanda among others.

(Economic and Political Weekly)

Located in a feminist framework this bouquet for young women researchers brings back relevant theoretical insights of how feminists look at gender issues and the construction of masculinities and feminities during times of war and peace.

(The Book Review)

This book chronicles varied experiences, reactions and viewpoints of women who are placed in variegated situations. Erudite, enlightening and absorbing read.

(The Tribune)

This book explores the role of women as agents and visionaries of peace in South Asia….The articles in the collection adopt a new approach to understanding peace – as a desire to end repression that cuts across caste, class, race, and gender and an effort on the part of the women to transform their position in the society.

(Free Press Journal)

This volume reflects the multiplicity of women’s role in peace politics in South Asia through a collection of important articles on the subject.

(Prabhaat Khabar)

The book explores the role of women as agents and visionaries of peace in South Asia... The book also deals with the myriad dimensions of peace as practiced by South Asian women over a period of time.

(The Pioneer)
