May You Be the Mother of a Hundred Sons: A Journey Among the Women of India

Elizabeth Bumiller, Author, Elisabeth Bumiller, Author Ballantine Books $14.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-449-90614-9
The overall powerlessness of Indian women is shown through a discussion of traditions and portraits of typical individuals. ``Based on Bumiller's four-year residence in India, this perceptive, alert travelogue considers the prevalent custom of arranged marriage, India's scattered, budding feminist movement, population control, female infanticide and the legacy of Indira Gandhi, a nonfeminist,'' said PW.
