"This theoretically and empirically diverse collection is a compelling read for anyone interested in questions gender, militarism and war. The simultaneously pervasive and yet often difficult to see conduits through which militarism both relies on and also impacts gender are examined through a combination of detailed case studies and more broadly focused conceptual pieces. This text will serve as the benchmark for everyone – scholars, activists and students – working in this area." (Sandra Whitworth
