States of Conflict: Gender, Violence and Resistance

Front Cover
Susie Jacobs, Ruth Jacobson, Jennifer Marchbank
Palgrave Macmillan, 2000 - Social Science - 246 pages
Highlighting gendered violence across layers of social and political organization, from the military to the sexual, this book explores the connections between international security, intra-state conflict and 'domestic' violence. International in scope, it makes the links between the local and the global and between the public and the private, in its discussion of gendered violence.Claiming that it is not enough to simply 'add' women to international relations theory, the contributors to this book brilliantly demonstrate how much more fruitful an in-depth analysis of the different layers of gendered violence can be. This book will be necessary reading for students and academics of women's studies, international relations and political theory.
