Wives, Mistresses, and Matriarchs free pdf This rich and perceptive book shatters the myth of the submissive Asian woman with its vivid portraits of women in the region.

Set in a vast region of enormous social disparity and rapid change, these unique stories dispel Western stereotypes and show just how often the concerns of women in Asia differ from those of women in the West.
