Gender is not a 'security issue', but it tells us a lot about how, why and when certain subjects are written as security concerns. Thirteen case studies on violent subjects, reason, and emotion demonstrate different ways in which we understand political violence, security, resistance, power, and agency, and how we make sense of gender.

'Gender, agency and political violence is a thought-provoking contribution to feminist debates around issues of political violence, agency/resistance and conflict resolution...The volume is an invaluable contribution to existing scholarship, providing both new empirical insights and novel methods for understanding the gendered nature of violence, both in its perpetration and subsequent (re)interpretations.' - Maria O'Reilly, King's College London, Peacebuilding
