|Summary, etc.:|| "Since 1993 more than six hundred girls and women have been brutally slain in Ciudad Juarez in internationally condemned violence for which no one has been arrested. Nancy Pineda-Madrid's powerful reflection on this destructive and dehumanizing violence, based on first-hand knowledge of the traumatic situation in Juarez, attempts to understand the cultural, economic, and even religious factors that feed the violence. She detects in the social suffering of the women there are yearning for release, justice, and healing in their quest for salvation through solidarity and community practices that resist rather than acquiesce to the violence"-- Publisher description.
