Globalization and Militarism : Feminists Make the Link Paperback / softback
Part of the Globalization series
Militarism is being globalized today not only in war zones such as Ukraine and Syria, but in "peaceful" arenas such as families and football stadiums.
Ideas and practices of masculinities and femininities are fuel for this global militarization.
Who is presumed to be "weak" and who "tough"? Who is the "protector, who the "grateful protected"?
Written by one of the world's leading feminist scholars, this masterful and provocative newly updated edition tracks how women's desires to be patriotic yet feminine and men's fears of being feminized each have been exploited to globalize militarism-and thus what it will take to roll back militarization anywhere.
Here are explorations of how governments shrink the meaning of "national security," how Nike and Adidas rely on militaries to keep women workers' wages low, how ideas about feminization were used to humiliate male prisoners in Abu Ghraib, and of why "camo" became a fashion statement.
Cynthia Enloe offers readers a practical gender analysis tool kit with which to expose militarism's blatant and subtle workings.
Focusing her lens on the "big picture" of international politics and on the not-so-small picture of women's and men's complex everyday lives, Enloe challenges us to chart militarism in all its forms in this updated edition.
