In this volume the photographer Josef Breitenback presents Asia's women as individuals ranging over the whole vast Asian continent (with the exception of Communist China). He presents the women at work, at play, at prayer, as brides, mothers, mourners; following the traditional way of life or forging ahead into the new social freedoms of the 20th century. He covers town and coutnry, the priviledged few and the ubiquitous poor.
