An impressive volume with rich qualitative and quantitative data has come up, full of useful information and important insights from historical and contemporary trends on the relationship between women, their work and land ownership/disinheritance in the context of emergent patterns of burgeoning capitalists economy, migration, and legal contestations on the matter. Prem Chowdhry provides an able and exhaustive introduction to seemingly varied situations. Some chapters are written by academicians who try to weave several themes together.
This volume is informative and engaging, and leads to a better understanding of the directions of change and the areas of intervention which need to be addressed by policy makers, administrators, researchers and gender sensitive progressive organisations.
