The Man Question In International Relations
Marysia Zalewski, Jane Parpart, EDITOR *
Avalon Publishing, 1998 - Political Science - 219 pages
International relations is still very much a man's field. Questioning and problematizing the subjecthood of men, this book of twelve original essays examines the various ways in which masculinities are implicated in international relations theories and practices. The contributors argue that if the subject of international relations is constructed around men and masculinity, then perhaps destabilizing the subject of “man” will help destabilize the whole field in ways that “adding women and stirring” has not. The feminist modern project of bringing attention to women can paradoxically highlight the fluidity of the subject of woman rather than reveal the solidity of her position, however illusory.
