In this book, Christine Sylvester examines the history of feminists' efforts to include gender relations in the study of international relations. Tracing the author's own 'journey' through the subject, as well as the work of other leading feminist scholars, the book examines theories, methods, people and locations which have been neglected by conventional scholarship. It will be of interest to scholars and students of international relations, women's and gender studies, and postcolonial studies.

Industry Reviews

'... a tantalizing read that teases the reader into critical reflection about feminist theory and IR theory as much through its style as through its substantive claims. Most of all, it provokes the reader through its refusal to assert any definitive conclusion about what feminism brings to IR or IR to feminism. The book is more than an intellectual autobiography (though it certainly is that) - it also a serious contribution to the ongoing dialogue between feminist and IR theory.'
