Why Rapes?: India's New Epidemic

N C Asthana (Author)

India’s rape crisis points to a deep-rooted socio-cultural problem that has pervaded the society. The crime rate in respect of rapes has been steadily and constantly increasing since the last two decades and, thus, the lives and dignity of women are under constant threat. Close to 40,000 women are raped in the country every year – 40% of the rape victims being minors. Moreover, due to the shame and legal hassles, about 85% of the rape cases are never reported. Clearly, something has gone horribly wrong somewhere. However, we can address the problem of rape only when we understand it in its entire complexity. As responsible citizens, we must raise our voice against the menace of rape. This book Why Rapes: India’s New Epidemic is the most comprehensive analysis of the forces and the phenomena that are making the country so unsafe for women. The book critically analyses the rape crisis, psychological analysis of rapists, socio-cultural reasons of rapes, effect of porn and popular mass media, trauma of rape victims, penalty to control rapes, etc, in great length. The book has been authenticated by scores of judgements of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and a formidable bibliography of about 200 references. This book will be extremely useful for academicians, police officers, judicial officers, law-makers, social workers, students of sociology and all the citizens who are concerned about the security of women.

About the author

N C Asthana

Dr. N.C. Asthana, IPS, Inspector General, holds a doctorate in Physics and in his outlook and approach remains a scientist first and foremost. He is a veritable polymath; a sui generis myriad-minded progeny of learning who epitomizes a singular synthesis of an unprecedented depth of knowledge in the most diverse fields and an exceptionally creative intellect. Talent does what it can, and genius does what it must; he combines both. The present book is a classic example of the tremendous command with which he expounds simultaneously on subjects as disparate as particles physics, cosmology, neuroscience, molecular biology, pphilosophy and metaphysics, etc. in a most scholarly and yet exceptionally lucid manner. He has earlier authored the world's very first book on the science of intelligence entitled "Intelligence and Security Management", and hitherto the most exhaustive study on terrorism entitled "Terrorism, Insurgencies and Counter-insurgency Operations".
