"This is a fascinating and extensively researched exploration of a range of forms of gender-based violence that combines historical, anthropological, and legal perspectives. One of its strengths is the way it juxtaposes studies of the legal regulation of violence in the colonial era with that of the postcolonial human rights era." -Sally Engle Merry, author of Human Rights and Gender Violence: Translating International Law into Local Justice
