Description:
Militarism is being globalized today, not only because weapons are being traded worldwide, but because certain ideas about 'femininity' and 'masculinity' are being promoted and absorbed globally. Who is presumed to be the 'protector?' Who is taught to be grateful to be the 'protected?' Written by one of the world's leading feminist scholars, this masterful and provocative book considers how women's desires to be patriotic yet feminine and men's fears of being feminized have been exploited to globalize militarism - and thus what it will take to roll back militarization anywhere. Through explorations of how governments think so narrowly about 'national security,' of how postwar reconstruction efforts have marginalized women, of how ideas about feminization were used to humiliate male prisoners in Abu Ghraib, and of why 'camo' has become a fashion statement, the author unravels militarism's both blatant and subtle workings. Focusing her lens on the 'big picture' of international politics and on the small picture of women's and men's complex everyday lives, she challenges us to recognize militarism in all its forms.
