In this riveting memoir, Wei Yang Chao now tells his story--how rebels attacked and publicly humiliated his family, upended his education, and sent out of a country rendered unrecognizable by violence and radical ideology. At first he is swept up by the Red Guards but finds himself at the center of a bloody revolution. After mass rallies at Tiananmen Square, he witnesses attacks on teachers and professors, and the disintegration of his parents' lives as tolerance and freedom begin to crumble he finds himself cast into exile"--Amazon.com.

This text is about war as it is seen, lived and interpreted by women, based on interviews with seventy women refugees. Written by citizens of the former Yugoslavia who understand and appreciate the circumstances of the victims, it is a probing investigation into victimization. Many of the accounts portray the horrific experiences the victims had to face and the book addresses the issues of sexual, physical and psychological violence, as well as the problems of confinement, upheaval and family separation. The book dispels the myth that many of the women were peasants, and shows that in fact they were educated, middle-class women with independent careers. The study also depicts how some of the victims attempt to come to terms with the aftermath of wartime abuse. The text also maintains that violence against women in war is not independent of peace-time victimization and the imbalance of power between sexes. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9789639116603 20160528
