Speaking the Unspeakable: Marital Violence among South Asian Immigrants in the United States.

Margaret
Abraham

The author, a native of India despite her anglicized name, .courageously explores the horribly lonely, even abusive and deadly, dimension of South Asian women brought to the United States. Her book not only explores the challenges faced by these women but also points out ways she was able to complete her research despite cultural taboos. It also documents ways that organized groups of these women are able to bring relief to other women who have been burned, beaten, raped, and otherwise abused.
