About the Author

Carol Cohn is the author of Women and Wars: Contested Histories, Uncertain Futures, published by Wiley.


Book of the month on Intercross "If I were to deliver a course or module focused on the topic of'women and wars', this is without a doubt the textbook I wouldchoose. "To my mind, the very best academic work makes its reader sit upand take notice, either because the ideas are unfamiliar or becausefamiliar ideas have been articulated in a new and engaging way. Theindividual chapters in this volume do both." Gender and Development "A valuable collection for everyone interested in learning some ofthe ways feminist (IR) analysis is currently formulating, studying,and presenting its war questions." LSE Review of Books "A comprehensive and highly readable collection, which isthematically and conceptually coherent." Resilience "Too often, women remain invisible in times of war. Withcontributions from scholars, activists, and policymakers, Womenand Wars uncovers stories about women s multiple roles aswarriors, war victims, and peacebuilders. An important text foranyone concerned with the tragic consequences of today swars. And a reminder that wars are always gendered." J. Ann Tickner, School of International Relations, University ofSouthern California "With its diverse, thoughtful, and theoretically rich perspectiveson gender, conflict and violence this book stands out from thecrowd as an exceptional and interdisciplinary contribution to thefield. This will be a valuable resource for scholars andpractitioners and should be treated as a 'go to' resource giving anexciting perspective on the state of the field in gender andwar." Megan Mackenzie, University of Sydney "The book provides a comprehensive picture of the currentscholarship on women and war as well as detailed and disturbingaccounts of the lives of women during and after many recent wars.It would be an ideal text for a variety of courses on internationaland human security." Craig Murphy, Wellesley College "The chapters are rich both in their content and theirdiversity. Women and Wars stands out as an important volumein an increasingly busy field of scholarship. I will return to thetext many times for future teaching and will undoubtedly beassigning chapters to my students." Dr Catherine O Rourke, University of Ulster
