Part of the Macmillan Interdisciplinary Handbooks series on gender studies, Gender: War examines war through the discipline of gender and sexuality studies. Containing 24 chapters, the volume demonstrates that bodies and other allegedly passive material/other allegedly passive objects have a history and also agency. Chapters describe feminist interventions in war and violence history’s genealogy, present incarnations, and possibilities for the future in the context of gender and sexuality studies. Chapters are written by eminent scholars, are peer reviewed, include illustrations, and offer bibliographies to encourage further research. The volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index.
