Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In six essays, many of them previously published in earlier versions, feminist Hooper discusses the construction of gender identity, masculine credentials, and international-relations intertext, the remaking of hegemonic masculinity, and other topics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
International Affairs
Contributes to the theoretical development of international relations and is important reading for those interested in the challenge of incorporating gender into the field... This book will engage scholars interested in issues of gender identity and globalization apparent in popular culture

International History Review
Hooper draws conceptual, normative, and discursive parallels between the discipline of international relations and its practice in real life... fascinating... excellent.

International Politics
Crucial for illuminating the current contests between and among hegemonic and subordinated masculinities now in play.

Signs
