Editorial Reviews

Susan Moller Okin
Tickner—an established scholar in international relations and a well-informed and thoughtful feminist—rethinks from a feminist point of view virtually every conventional category used by theorists and practictioners of international relations: the state, the international system, security, rationalism, citizenship, and more.
Political Science Quarterly
A particularly accessible, and, therefore, especially welcome introduction to international relations (IR generally and the meaning of global security specifically) when examined through a gender-sensitive lens. . . . for all who seek new ways to think about and understand world politics.
Applies a variety of contemporary feminist perspectives to the phenomenon of international relations; presents constructive criticism of realist, neorealist, liberal, and Marxist theories; shows how the entire landscape changes when gender is added to the picture; and explores such issues as the environment and the different benefits of the world economy for men and women.
