Abstract

Why is it that men and boys have been and still are violated in human conflict, be it in conventional war, insurgencies or periods of civil and ethnic strife? This volume about male sexual violence explores the meaning and role of the male body prior to its abuse and how it is altered by violation in wartime. The author examines the bio-political contexts of conflict in which primarily men and occasionally women sexually violate men; he details the inadequate legal safeguards for survivors of such events; and in unearthing and analyzing an ignored aspect of war, he inquires whether such violence can ever be deterred.
