Charlotte Hooper won the British International Studies Association best dissertation prize in 1998. She now teaches gender and international relations at the University of Bristol.
"Contributes to the theoretical development of international relations and is important reading for those interested in the challenge of incorporating gender into the field... This book will engage scholars interested in issues of gender identity and globalization apparent in popular culture" -- International Affairs "Hooper draws conceptual, normative, and discursive parallels between the discipline of international relations and its practice in real life... fascinating... excellent." -- International History Review "Crucial for illuminating the current contests between and among hegemonic and subordinated masculinities now in play." -- International Politics "With the publication of this text Hooper joins the first rank of scholars using interdisciplinary tools to investigate questions of manhood and power." -- Matthew Basso, Signs
