About this book

The author looks at the tensions and divergences in and between organizations, and their potential for cohering into a powerful worldwide counter-hegemonic movement for violence reduction.

Reviews

'A new book by Cynthia Cockburn is always cause for cheer. Antimilitarism is full of gritty cross-national comparisons. You can hear women peace activists debating whether to stay in mixed-gender movements, and when do masculinized internal movement cultures replicate the patriarchal structures that perpetuate militarism. Students of social movements, masculinities, feminisms and militarism will each be smarter for having read Cynthia Cockburn.'

- Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War

'Cynthia Cockburn's research has done a service to the various peace and anti-war groupsh. Ultimately, it challenges readers to look for "a different common sense". This is the critical, "counter-hegemonic" sense that works for a reduction of every form of violence - from the structural violence of poverty and deprivation and from daily physical violence and intimidation to the organised mass violence of war - and insists that there are other choices we can bring into being.'

- Howard Clark, War Resisters' International
