Synopsis: Gender roles are nowhere more prominent than in war, yet our understanding of the relationship between gender and war is confused. Joshua Goldstein analyzes the near-total exclusion of women from combat forces, through history and across cultures. He concludes that killing in war does not come naturally for either gender, and that gender norms often mold men, women, and children to the needs of the war system.

Book Description: Gender roles are nowhere more prominent than in war, yet our understanding of how gender affects war and vice versa is confused. In this definitive and lively book, Joshua Goldstein seeks to explain the near-total exclusion of women from combat forces, through history and across cultures. He concludes that killing in war does not come naturally for either gender, and that gender norms often shape men, women, and children to the needs of the war system. This unique study is illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, and graphics.
