ENDANGERED DAUGHTERS: DISCRIMINATION & DEVELOPMENT IN ASIA (pb)2001
Author: CROLL
ISBN: 0415247659
Year: 2001
Publisher: CRC PRESS
Category: ANTHROPOLOGY
Edition: 1
Format: Paperback
Language: English
Pages: 224
 ABOUT THE TITLE
This unique and groundbreaking book seeks to re-focus gender debate onto the issue of daughter discrimination - a phenomenon still hidden and unacknowledged across the world.

It asks the controversial question of why millions of girls do not appear to be surviving to adulthood in contemporary Asia. In the first major study available of this emotive and sensitive issue, Elisabeth Croll investigates the extent of discrimination against female children in Asia and shifts the focus of attention firmly from son-preference to daughter-discrimination.

This book brings together demographic data and anthropological field studies to reveal the multiple ways in which girls are disadvantaged, from excessive child mortality to the withholding of health care and education on the basis of gender. Focusing especially on China and India, the book reveals the surprising coincidence of increasing daughter discrimination with rising economic development, declining fertility and the generally improved status of women in East and South Asia. Essential reading for all those interested in gender in contemporary society.

About the Author
Elizabeth Croll is Professor Chinese Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. For more than twenty-five years she as conducted field studies in China and is a world authority on social development and gender issues in historical and contemporary China. She is the author of From Heaven to Earth (Routledge, 1994).
