Women in South Asia have borne the brunt of militarism
in a number of ways, especially because, combined
with fundamentalism and national chauvinism, it
has reinforced patriarchal practice. With militarism,
all other oppressions tend to interlock.
This book is a closely argued, detailed analysis
of the growing militarism in South Asia and presents
not just the phenomenon, but all its ramifications,
examining its manifestations across the region from
a feminist perspective for the first time.
