Abstract

The reality of international relations and its academic study are still almost entirely constituted by men. This volume is an investigation and reinvigoration of debates about gender and international relations.  This book looks at the increasingly violent and 'toxic' nature of world politics post 9/11. Contributors consider the diverse theoretical and practical implications of masculinity for international relations in the modern world, covering theoretical issues including masculine theories of war, masculinity and the military, cyborg soldiers, post-traumatic stress disorder and white male privilege. The book also focuses on the ways in which masculinity configures world events from conscientious objection in South Africa to 'porno-nationalism' in India, from myths and heroes in Kosovo to the makings of Zimbabwe.
