The Endangered Sex: Neglect of Female Children in Rural North India by Barbara Miller

This revised edition of a book originally published in 1981 studies the power of a culture that shapes family attitudes toward children.

The ritualistic practice of female infanticide is presented with ethnographic depth and accuracy.
