Gender and Conflict Since 1914 : Historical and Interdisciplinary Perspectives, Paperback Book

Gender and Conflict Since 1914 : Historical and Interdisciplinary Perspectives Paperback

Part of the Gender and History series

Description

The First World War was a turning point for modern globalised warfare.

It involved the inclusion of women in 'war efforts', the homefront becoming the warzone, and produced millions of wounded and disabled men.

At the same time, it incited an extraordinary arsenal of gendered discourses, practices and beliefs in the service of militarism, power structures and personal agency. This insightful collection of interdisciplinary essays, by a wide-ranging team of experts, draws out critical themes emanating from 1914.

Spanning the First and Second World Wars, through to the Vietnam War, the 'War on Terror' and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the volume asks what has changed and what has continued?

Ana Carden-Coyne demonstrates adeptly how understanding gender during periods of conflict has ongoing relevance across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
