dc.descriptionThis article explores the psychosocial effects of war on Maya Indian widows in villages in Guatemala's El Quiche province. For three years the Government sponsored terrorism as part of a 30-year civil war in Guatemala. Zur examines the different forms of violence the women face, their changing roles and increasing politicisation, and how pre-existing community tensions are exacerbated by the violence. She concludes that the greatest psychological harm done to the women is a constant sense of fear. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
