There is no human phenomenon which is more baffling than Suicide. It has always puzzled and intrigued the thinking mind that man, in a moment of frenzy, should kill himself and in one stroke end that mighty dream of his-the life-which he has so selfishly built. To this day, there is not a single undivided opinion on suicide. Some have commended it: others have condemned it. Even our ancient seers and philosophers have taken sides on the issue. But suicide has continued unabated and so also its implications on society. Here is an illuminating book which has this unusual subject as the topic of its study and tackles it from every conceivable angle. In it, origins of suicide have been traced in history, both remote and recent; its religious manifestations have been discussed in detail; its modes, past and present, as current in various lands, have been outlines; views, for and against, have been presented and statistics quoted. More than all, it emphasises the need for positive action in India in planning and executing measures to curb the evil of self-annihilation. Printed Pages: 250 with 8 b/w illustrations.
