Is gender in politics only about how many women get
elected to parliament? Is osteoporosis a women-s disease?
Why do more women die in natural disasters?These are not
the questions journalists usually ask when they set out
to do their jobs as reporters, sub-editors, photographers
of editors. Yet, by not asking, are they missing out on
something, perhaps half the story? This is the question
this book, edited and written by journalists, for
journalists and the lay public interested in media,
raises.Through examples from the media, and from their
own experience, the contributors explain the concept of
gender-sensitive journalism and look at a series of
subjects that journalists have to cover - sexual assault,
environment, development, business, politics, health,
disasters, conflict - and set out a simple way of
integrating a gendered lens into day-to-day journalism.

rather than pathologise them.

too early to be definitive about the form that capitalism
and imperialism -and socialism-might be or is taking, as
we are in but the early stages of a new developmental
dynamic, the conditions of which are too complex to
anticipate or grasp in thought, they require a closer

countries. It raises new questions about the process of
globalisation, particularly about who the actors are
(local people, the state, NGOs, multinational companies)
and the shifting relations among them. The book also

This book focuses on the economic activities of Khasi
women, a matrilineal tribe in North-East India. Like most
women in tribal societies, Khasi women contribute
significantly to the sustenance of the family. However,
women-s contribution to the economy remains a largely
neglected area, both in research as well as in policy,
not only in North-East India, but also nationally and
internationally. What accounts for this general
indifference to the economic role of women is one of the
issues addressed in this book.

When India became independent in 1947 after two centuries
of colonial rule, it immediately adopted a firmly
democratic political system, with multiple parties,
freedom of speech, and extensive political rights.
Maintaining rapid as well as environmentally sustainable
growth remains an important and achievable goal for
India. The authors argue that the country-s main problems
lie in the lack of attention paid to the essential needs
of the people, especially of the poor, and often of
women. In the long run, even the feasibility of high
economic growth is threatened by the underdevelopment of
social and physical infrastructure and the neglect of

In History, Literature, Critical Theory, the author
continues his exploration of the complex relations
between history and literature, here considering history
as both process and representation. A recurrent motif of
the book is the role of the sacred, its problematic
status in sacrifice, its virulent manifestation in social
and political violence (notably the Nazi genocide), its
role or transformations in literature and art, and its
multivalent expressions in "postsecular" hopes,
anxieties, and quests.

Gender, generation and cultural values shape Indian
lifestyles at home and abroad even, as they carry traces
of old homes into new ones. A woman-s place is at heart
of these evolving notions of home. In Search of Home
traces how women recreate an idea of home through their
fiction. The popularity of Indo-English literature both
in India and abroad notwithstanding, the anxiety of
Indianness still shadows authors and their works. Among
women authors particularly, the question of Indianness is
represented in the concerns of identities, nationalism,
family or community values and gender roles. Home is
often the site for the preservation, pedagogy and
performance of Indianness. The author maps Indian English
literature in India and the diaspora while situating it
in the framework of world literature.
