This revised edition of a book originally published in 1981 studies the power of a culture that shapes family attitudes toward children. Miller herein determines how and why the treatment of children in a certain part of Northern India is based upon their gender. The ritualistic practice of female infanticide is presented with ethnographic depth and accuracy.
