abstract = "The concept of a Dowry, whilst known throughout the world, is one which is much misunderstood and often regarded as synonymous with acts of violence against women. This exciting new volume seeks to debunk the overly simplistic conceptions of Dowry that are propagated by a lack of understanding of this cultural practice. Taking a variety of theoretical and active approaches, this work successfully bridges the gap between today's prevailing theory and practice, whilst enshrining the centrality of South Asian women's own experiences as a starting point to any discussion.Through advocating the use of collective processes to liberate women, this book empowers women to be the agents of change as opposed to merely victims. Bringing a unique diversity of perspectives from leading academics and activists, this book opens up the term 'Dowry' to undertake a study of its role in various communities across the world from the practice of 'mehr' amongst Muslim societies, the role of the dowry in Bangladesh, and its position in the wider diasporic populations globally. The groundbreaking, multidisciplinary book is essential reading for students, policymakers, practitioners and activists alike.",
