Overview

The Gendered New World Order: Militarism, Development and the Environment

Ecological security seems increasingly precarious and battles over land and models of economic development now lead to military conflicts. The Gendered New World
Order
addresses the compelling issue of how gender connects the global problems of militarism, underdevelopment, and environmental decay. Scholars from around the world make connections between seemingly disparate issues such as refugees, polluted waters, bombed vilages, massive dam projects, starving children, deforestation, nuclear arms buildup and the rights of women.
