More Description

In this radical analysis of globalization, Cynthia Enloe pulls back the curtain on familiar scenes--governments promoting tourism, companies moving their factories overseas, soldiers serving on foreign soil--to reveal the crucial role of women in international politics today.
With new material and analysis for the 21st century, including a new chapter on women and events over the last decade, Enloe describes how many women's seemingly personal strategies--in their marriages, in their housework, in their coping with ideals of beauty--are, in reality, the stuff of global politics. In exposing policymakers' reliance on false notions of "femininity" and "masculinity," Enloe dismantles an apparently overwhelming world system, revealing it to be much more fragile and open to change than we think.
