Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415221722, Hardcover)Women, States and Nationalism counters this attitude and examines the many and contradictory ways in which women negotiate their places in 'the nation'. The volume includes theoretical essays that explore the multiple ways in which the very concept of 'nation' is based upon notions of family, sexuality and gender power which are often overlooked of downplayed by 'male-stream' scholarship. It gathers together an outstanding panel of feminist scholars and area studies specialists, who, through a series of focused case studies, analyse diverse issues which include;
*gender and sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland
*the paradox of Israeli women soldiers
*women, civic duty and the military in the USA
*the Hindu Right in India
*power, agency and representation in Zimbabwe
*political identity and heterosexism.
This timely volume is a highly valuable resource for students and scholars of Nationalism, Internationalism Studies and Women's Studies.
