Overview

As a field of scholarship, gender and politics has exploded over the last fifty years and is now global, institutionalized, and ever expanding. The Oxford Handbook of Gender and Politics brings to political science an accessible and comprehensive overview of the key contributions of gender scholars to the study of politics and shows how these contributions produce a richer understanding of polities and societies.
Like the field it represents, the handbook has a broad understanding of what counts as political and is based on a notion of gender that highlights masculinities as well as femininities, thereby moving feminist debates in politics beyond the focus on women. It engages with some of the key aspects of political science as well as important themes in gender and feminist research (such as sexuality and body politics), thereby forging a dialogue between gender studies in politics and mainstream political science.
The handbook is organized in sections that look at sexuality and body politics; political economy; civil society; participation, representation and policymaking; institutions, states and governance as well as nation, citizenship and identity. The Oxford Handbook of Gender and Politics contains and reflects the best scholarship in its field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The editors of Oxford University Press's Handbook of Gender and Politics have provided the field with an essential research and teaching gem. The tome is global, timely, thoughtful, theoretical, and thorough. We should tip our sun bonnets, hijabs, hats, helmets, and veils to these editors for the hard work aforethought, careful and sensitive planning for and accomplishment of an inclusive wisdom which went into this stellar Oxford Handbook of Gender and Politics."--Asian Women

"This text, from the first, takes an academically rigorous, socially aware and culturally enlightened approach to a rather ambiguous title, and in so doing, makes a significant contribution to the rapidly developing field, of not just political science as a discipline, but to every discipline, and, outside of academia, every person, to whom the issues discussed are relevant and therefore life affecting."--London School of Economics EUROPP blog
