Overview

Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium argues that the power of gender works to help keep gender, race, class, sexual, and national divisions in place despite increasing attention to gender issues in the study and practice of world politics. Accessible and student-friendly for both undergraduate and graduate courses, authors Anne Sisson Runyan and V. Spike Peterson analyze gendered divisions of power and resources that contribute to the worldwide crises of representation, violence, and sustainability. They emphasize how hard-won attention to gender equality in world affairs can be co-opted when gender is used to justify or mystify unjust forms of global governance, international security, and global political economy.

In the new and updated fourth edition, Runyan and Peterson examine the challenges of forging transnational solidarities to de-gender world politics, scholarship, and practice through renewed politics for greater representation and redistribution. Yet they see promise in coalitional struggles to re-radicalize feminist world political demands to change the downward conditions of women, men, children, and the planet. Updated to include framing questions at the opening of each chapter, discussion questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, and updated data on gender statistics and policymaking. Chapters One and Two have also been revised to provide more support to readers with less of a background in gender politics. Case studies and web resources are now also provided.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the Third Edition:

"Once again, this is the place to begin if you are organizing a course on gender and world politics."
Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College

"This is exactly the book we all want to introduce students to feminist IR: it's global in its reach, it's down-to-earth in its style, it shows why ideas matter, and it offers students the most up-to-date scholarly findings. Spike Peterson and Anne Runyan are themselves the creators of this whole field, so who better to entice students into thinking new thoughts about this complex world?"
Cynthia Enloe, Clark University, author of The Curious Feminist

"Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium maps, summarizes and analyzes key insights of feminist work in a way that is thoughtful and challenging for both a general readership as well as for feminist scholarship. It raises important questions through a gender prism that allow us to reflect upon key global issues…This is an important and wide ranging contribution to the debates on international relations, international political economy and security studies."
Shirin M. Rai, University of Warwick
