Defiance is Savitri Devis vivid and impassioned memoir of her arrest, trial, and imprisonment on the charge of distributing National Socialist propaganda in Occupied Germany in 1949. Defiance is Savitri Devis most readable book. It is not primarily ...
primarily a work of philosophy or history, but a gripping first-person narrative that often reads like a novel.
Until now, Defiance has been almost impossible to find. Published in a tiny edition by Savitri Devis husband A.K. Mukherji in Calcutta in 1951, it was distributed privately by the authoress to her friends and comrades, and it has not been reprinted since. This deluxe, numbered hardcover second edition is being published in commemoration of the 102nd anniversary of Savitri Devis birth, on 30 September 2007. The new edition will also contain a number of previously unseen illustrations from the Archive.
