Overview

Nimo, Maha, Safah, Shatha, Emma, Danielle, Kim, Charlene. In a book that once again demonstrates her flair for blending the textures of everyday life with shrewd political insights, Cynthia Enloe looks closely at the lives of eight women, four Iraqis and four Americans, during the war in Iraq. Enloe profiles a Baghdad beauty parlor owner, a teenage girl who survived a massacre, an elected member of Parliament, the young wife of an Army sergeant, and an African American woman soldier, among others. Bringing to light unexpected theaters of operation-prostitution, sexual assault, marriage, ethnic politics, sexist economies-these stories are a brilliant entryway for exploring the actual causes, costs, and long-range consequences of war.

Blossom yowled, green eyes blazing in rage." Well, i wanted to ma<_>te, but you never gave the slightest hint you wanted to be fu<_>cked!" Ashen retorted. Then the other she came in. She smelled of another clan." Who are you?" Demanded Blossom, unsheathing her claws." Shes my friend, Rain. She is in heat." He mewed. Torch remained silent as they went on arguing." Ok, forget this ever happened." Rain said. The other cats nodded." I should get back to my camp." She added, quickly padding off." We should too." Torch mewed, finally speaking.
