Reviews

"This volume is an exciting tribute to the intellectual contribution of Jan Jindy Pettman who has beena path-breaker in feminist international relations theory. It brings together many of the key first and second generation feminist thinkers on international relations around cutting edge approaches to gendering global politics in Asia and the Pacific." - Greg Fry, Hedley Bull Fellow, Department of International Relations, Australian National University

"This is an excellent example of the contemporary range of international feminist scholarship. An inspired and inspirational book - it would be a valuable addition to both feminist IR reading lists as well as mainstream ones. Reading gender through and in global politics, this book tells us a great deal about the powerful, intricate and intimate workings of contemporary global politics." - Marysia Zalewski, Reader in Gender Studies, University of Aberdeen
