ISSUE: VOLUME 27.02 MARCH 1998
Widows: Life after death

Out of the darkness

No group in the world is as neglected as widows. They fall through every aid and development net, as well as through the cracks in the women's movement itself. Silent invisible, they are condemned to the twilight world custom and practice imposes in so many parts of the world; they are the unreckoned detritus of war from Bosnia to Afghanistan. Index invokes the silent world of the widow.

With Caroline Moorehead, Michael Griffin, Ahmed Buric, Muborak Sharipova.

Also in this issue: A county file on Central Asia in which correspondents and voices from the region reveal the complex and often turbulent world obscured by the great powers' obsession with its oil wealth. The new "Great Game" pits Russia, China and the USA against each other, often to the detriment of the people who inhabit the land.
