Gendering World Politics

Issues and Approaches in the Post-Cold War Era

J. Ann Tickner

Columbia University Press

Expanding on the issues she originally explored in her classic work, Gender in International Relations, J. Ann Tickner focuses her distinctively feminist approach on new issues of the international relations agenda since the end of the Cold War, such as ethnic conflict and other new security issues, globalizations, democratization, and human rights. As in her previous work, these topics are placed in the context of brief reviews of more traditional approaches to the same issues. She also looks at the considerable feminist work that has been published on these topics since the previous book came out.

Tickner highlights the misunderstandings that exist between mainstream and feminist approaches, and explores how these debates developed in the new environment of post–Cold War international relations.

Acclaim for Tickner's Gender in International Relations:

"For all who seek new ways to think about and understand world politics"

"Tickner... rethinks from a feminist point of view virtually every conventional category used by theorists and practictioners of international relations."—Susan Moller Okin, Stanford University
Tickner offers a massive survey of the literature in international relations, both traditional and feminist... Highly recommended for research libraries. Choice
Very good... Tickner manages to convey both the breadth and the subtleties of feminist contributions in IR.... She does not water down what she sees as the ultimate implications for IR of feminist analyses. American Political Science Review
