Overview

Expanding on the issues she originally explored in her classic work, Gender in International Relations, J. Ann Tickner focuses her distinctively feminist approach on new issues of the international relations agenda since the end of the Cold War, such as ethnic conflict and other new security issues, globalizations, democratization, and human rights. As in her previous work, these topics are placed in the context of brief reviews of more traditional approaches to the same issues. She also looks at the considerable feminist work that has been published on these topics since the previous book came out.

Tickner highlights the misunderstandings that exist between mainstream and feminist approaches, and explores how these debates developed in the new environment of post-Cold War international relations.

Acclaim for Tickner's Gender in International Relations:

"For all who seek new ways to think about and understand world politics"

--Political Science Quarterly

"Tickner... rethinks from a feminist point of view virtually every conventional category used by theorists and practictioners of international relations."--Susan Moller Okin, Stanford University

Editorial Reviews

Choice

Tickner offers a massive survey of the literature in international relations, both traditional and feminist... Highly recommended for research libraries.

American Political Science Review

Very good... Tickner manages to convey both the breadth and the subtleties of feminist contributions in IR.... She does not water down what she sees as the ultimate implications for IR of feminist analyses.

Booknews
While the field of international relations remains dominated by men, and its curriculum still lacks serious attention to gender issues, political events of the past decade have set in motion a transformation in which challenges to the field's "scientific" foundations are making room for new, feminist approaches. Tickner (U. of Southern California) both celebrates feminist work in international relations in the 1990s and also explores the profound changes in the discipline made possible by the end of the Cold War<-->away from an overriding emphasis on military-security issues and toward cultural and economic issues.
