About this item

Gender studies, international relations, political science, and other scholars from the US, Europe, India, Canada, and Australia offer 27 chapters on the gendered aspects of the conduct and impact of war, opposition to it, and its aftermath. They examine the role of gender in enabling the conduct of war, the day-to-day operations, and understanding it, discussing women's agency in war, espionage and counter-espionage, masculinity, terrorism, and other topics; impacts in terms of gender-based violence, refugee camps, adolescent women and girls, economics, sexuality in the military, women suicide bombers, and war journalism; opposition in various regions through feminist anti-militarism, anti-war activism, resistance to political violence, peace movements, anti-nuclear movements, and anti-war movements; and aftermath aspects related to the changing definitions of peace, security, and justice, the demilitarization and reintegration of soldiers, and the post-conflict society.
