Women and War in the Middle East critically examines how the experiences of women in conflict and post-conflict situations are shaped by the interactions between groups such as women's movements, diaspora communities, national governments, non-governmental actors and multilateral bodies. Contributions focus on Iraq and the Occupied Palestinian Territories and are based entirely on original empirical research.

Issues addressed include the impact of gender mainstreaming measures; the consequences for gender relations and identities of the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq; and how transnational feminist movements can most effectively support peace building and women's rights in the region.

The book brings together some of the foremost scholars in the areas of feminist international relations, feminist international political economy, anthropology, sociology, history and Middle East studies.

About the Author:

Review:

'In a fresh take on two deadly and intractable conflicts, these feminist authors show us an array of participants (governments, agencies, insurgents, donors, elites, movements) acting out the dynamics of gender power. It's a book that should shake up mainstream Middle East studies and empower transnational feminism.' Cynthia Cockburn, author of From Where We Stand: War, Women's Activism and Feminist Analysis (Zed Books, 2007). 'Nadje Al-Ali and Nicola Pratt bring together here some of the smartest feminist analysts of war and militarism in the Middle East. Together they show not only the profound effects of war and militarism on women's lives, but how asking feminist questions can make us all smarter about what causes and perpetuates both.' Cynthia Enloe, author of "The Curious Feminist: Searching for Women in the New Age of Empire" 'Written by scholars and activists who share a vision for justice and gender equality in the Middle East, this book offers compelling case-studies, cutting edge analysis and ground-breaking theorizing. It is an invaluable contribution to the scholarship on gender and war in general and on women in conflict and post-conflict situations in the Middle East and beyond.' Simona Sharoni. SUNY, Plattsburgh 'This is a book which should be read widely... this book has the coherence that so many edited books strive for but fail to achieve.' Jennifer G. Mathers, Aberystwyth University

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Women and War in the Middle East provides a critical examination of the relationship between gender and transnationalism in the context of war, peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction in the Middle East. Critically examining the ways in which the actions of various local and transnational groups - including women s movements, diaspora communities, national governments, non-governmental actors and multilateral bodies - interact to both intentionally and inadvertantly shape the experiences of women in conflict situations, and determine the possibilities for women s participation in peace-building and (post)-conflict reconstruction, as well as the longer-term prospects for peace and security. The volume pays particular attention to the ways in which gender roles, relations and identities are constructed, negotiated and employed within transnational social and political fields in the conflict and post-conflict situations, and their particular consequences for women. Contributions focus on the two countries with the longest experiences of war and conflict in the Middle East, and which have been subject to the most prominent international interventions of recent years - that is, Iraq and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Issues addressed by contributors include the impact of gender mainstreaming measures by international agencies and NGOs upon the ability of women to participate in peace-building and post-conflict resolution; the consequences for gender relations and identities of the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq; and how transnational feminist movements can most effectively support peace building and women s rights in the region. Based entirely on original empirical research. Women and War in the Middle East brings together some of the foremost scholars in the areas of feminist international relations, feminist international political economy, anthropology, sociology, history and Middle East studies.
