From the history of state terrorism in Latin America, to state- and group-perpetrated plunder and genocide in Africa, to war and armed conflicts in the Middle East, militarization--the heightened role of organized aggression in society--continues to painfully shape the lives of millions of people around the world.

In Security Disarmed, scholars, policy planners, and activists come together to think critically about the human cost of violence and viable alternatives to armed conflict. Arranged in four parts--alternative paradigms of security, cross-national militarization, militarism in the United States, and pedagogical and cultural concerns--the book critically challenges militarization and voices an alternative encompassing vision of human security by analyzing the relationships among gender, race, and militarization. This collection of essays evaluates and resists the worldwide crisis of militarizationùincluding but going beyond American military engagements in the twenty-first century.

Review:

One of the most important and exciting books among the recent flurry of feminist collections that elucidates the inextricable links among militarism, war, economic globalization, and neoliberalism and gender. --Margo Okazawa-Rey, Fielding Graduate University

This book deftly draws on experience, both from deep within the USA and far from its shores, to show how the cost of militarization and war is exacted by the powerful and paid by the poorest and most excluded. It will inspire students and activists with its examples of resistance to the abuse of power in its many dimensions, and its fresh thinking on the true meaning of security. --Cynthia Cockburn, feminist researcher and activist, City University London

An invaluable book for our times with multiple strengths. The volume situates the United States in a healthy comparative perspective while also revealing how gender is racialized and racisms are gendered throughout the world. --Cynthia Enloe, author of Globalization and Militarism: Feminists Make the Link
