Book Description:

Sex and World Peace argues that the security of women is a vital factor in the overall security of the state and its incidence of conflict and war. The authors compare micro-level gender violence and macro-level state peacefulness in global settings, supporting their findings with detailed analyses and color maps. Their research challenges conventional definitions of security and democracy, and they examine top-down and bottom-up approaches to healing the wounds of violence against women, inequity in family law, and the lack of parity in decision-making councils. Women's systemic insecurity unravels the security of all, and the authors articulate an international policy agenda that reflects this reality.

From the Author:

"A comprehensive coverage of . . . aspects of the beliefs and practices among the people of Huhhot [the capital of Inner Mongolia]."—Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology
