"Race, Gender and Culture in International Relations opens up the world of international relations to the world - where people carry social hierarchy through their lives and where national hierarchies are built on these social divisions and then magnify them. It is impossible to imagine 'international relations' without race and gender, without imperialism and the urge for freedom. But, of course, that's how IR is often understood. This book shows why IR has, largely, been too myopic and why IR needs to expand its vision."

Vijay Prashad, Trinity College, USA

"This is the first and much-needed textbook to emerge in IR that introduces the undergraduate student to postcolonialism. It has the added advantage of focusing in a sustained way on how Eurocentrism intersects with race and gender thereby bringing a wider critical perspective to the student. This is a deeply impressive book that should be a go-to resource for all lecturers and students who are interested in this rapidly-rising area within IR."

John M. Hobson, University of Sheffield, UK

"By bringing together race, gender and postcolonial critique, this textbook radically expands the vantage points and critical considerations currently offered in introductions to International Relations. Teachers and students alike will find the material challenging, thought provoking, and above all, timely and relevant."

Robbie Shilliam, Queen Mary University of London, UK

"This important textbook brings together contributions from outstanding scholars to advance our understandings of the cultural constitution of global politics through the intersections of race and gender. Drawing from postcolonial theory, indigenous theory, and feminist theory, the volume contributes in significant ways to enhancing our understandings of some of the key concepts and processes of International Relations - the nation-state, sovereignty, security, global capitalism, colonialism, and violence."

Shampa Biswas, Whitman College, USA
