Overview

Written as an introductory textbook for the study of world politics and the analysis of gender, this work is suitable for courses in International Relations, international political economy, women's studies, gender studies, and Feminist studies. The 14 authors who have collaborated on this publication are a diverse group of diplomats, scholars, and political activists from the United States, Canada, and many other nations. This text is designed to parallel traditional IR introductory texts that examine the field and describe how it ought to be studied and why. The contributors consider gender analysis as an alternative perspective for understanding world politics. For instructors, this anthology offers both a complement to and a critique of traditional approaches to the study of world politics.
