520    Women, Violence and War is a book 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 accurate and unique 
       investigation of victimization. 
520 80 Many of the accounts portray the horrific experiences the 
       victims had to face and the book addresses issues of 
       sexual, physical and psychological violence, as well as 
       problems of confinement, upheaval and family separation. 
       In a completely new insight 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 
520 80 Women, Violence and War is an unparalleled volume that 
       also presents a completely new perspective maintaining 
       that violence against women in war is not independent of 
       peace-time victimization and the imbalance of power 
       between sexes.
