Summary
The Palgrave International Handbook of Gender and the Military provides a comprehensive overview of the multiple ways in which gender and militaries connect. International and multi-disciplinary in scope, this edited volume provides authoritative accounts of the many intersections through which militaries issues and military forces are shaped by gender. The chapters provide detailed accounts of key issues, informed by examples from original research in a wealth of different national contexts. This Handbook includes coverage of conceptual approaches to the study of gender and militaries, gender and the organization of state military forces, gender as it pertains to military forces in action, transitions and transgressions within militaries, gender and non-state military forces, and gender in representations of military personnel and practices. With contributions from a range of both established and early career scholars, The Palgrave International Handbook of Gender and the Military is an essential guide to current debates on gender and contemporary military issues. Rachel Woodward is Professor of Human Geography in the School of Geography, Politics & Sociology, Newcastle University, UK. She is co-editor of the Routledge Companion to Military Research Methods (2016), co-author with Trish Winter of Sexing the Soldier (Routledge, 2007) and author of Military Geographies (Blackwell, 2004). Claire Duncanson is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations in the School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh, UK. She is author of Gender and Peacebuilding (Polity 2016) and Forces for Good? Military Masculinities in Afghanistan and Iraq (Palgrave Macmillan 2013). "Plunging into today's burgeoning research into the complex, intersectional dynamics of militaries (of myriad sorts), masculinities, and femininities can seem daunting. Here, though, is a terrific place to start. Woodward and Duncanson have created an accessible, worldly collection that reminds us that exploring genderings of militaries means charting processes of militarization and resistance to it." Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor and Adjunct Professor of Political Science, Clark University, USA
