    Abstract:
    This anthology of 20th-century South Asian and Middle Eastern women's writings illustrates how they have become active participants in conflicts, speaking about war not only as an extraordinary experience, but also as an ordinary experience of coping with violence on a daily basis. They show that women's involvements with the rituals of violence do not begin or end with traditional war, but that their daily struggles for survival stretch seamlessly into the more public arena of political war.
