Overview

Gender Ironies of Nationalism provides a unique social science reading on the construction of nation, gender and sexuality and on the interactions among them.

Including international case studies including the US, the Caribbean, Indonesia, Ireland, former

Yugoslavia, Liberia, Sri Lanka, Australia, Turkey, China, and India, contributors offer both the masculine and feminine perspective on exploring gender in Jewish and Chinese nationalism, and the anger of white men, just to name a few. They expose how nations are comprised of sexed

bodies, and exploring the gender ironies of nationalism and how sexuality plays a key role in nation building and in sustaining national identity. The contributors conclude that control over access to the benefits of belonging to the nation is invariably gendered: nationalism becomes the

language through which sexual control and repression is justified masculine prowess is expressed and exercised. While it is men who claim the prerogatives of nation and nation building it is, for the most part, women who actually accept the obligation of nation and nation building.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Social scientists explore the many complex intimacies between gender, nation, and sexuality in 14 essays. They find that control over access to the benefits of belonging to the nation is virtually always gendered and that through control over reproduction, sexuality, and the means of representation, the authority to define the nation lies mainly with men. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
'Mayer, in her thought-provoking and well organized introduction, sets the tone for the volume as she argues that nation, gender and sexuality are all social constructions, and are profoundly embedded in each other.' - Cultural Geographies

'This volume is a useful addition to understanding the intersection between nationalism, state, gender and sexuality in the context of specific national environments ... an important contribution and useful addition to the field of gender studies in nationalism.' - Zlatko Skrbis, University of Queensland
