Cambridge Studies in International Relations #32: Feminist Theory and International Relations in a Postmodern Eraby Christine Sylvestor
Synopses & Reviews
This book argues that the identities and activities commonly associated with women have been eliminated from the theories formulated about international relations. The author points out that these theories often rely on the hidden activities of women and their assigned tasks in life to establish a sphere of politics that is for men only. Using case studies of the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp in the UK, and of Zimbabwean women's efforts to secure international funding for producer cooperatives, the book explores the possibility of undermining the masculine identity politics of international relations.
Evaluates the major debates around which the discipline of international relations has developed in the light of contemporary feminist theories.
