The Routledge History of Gender, War, and the U.S. Military is the first examination of the interdisciplinary, intersecting fields of gender studies and the history of the United States military. In twenty-one original essays, the contributors tackle themes including gendering the "other," gender and war disability, gender and sexual violence, gender and American foreign relations, and veterans and soldiers in the public imagination, and lay out a chronological examination of gender and America's wars from the American Revolution to Iraq. This important collection is essential reading for all those interested in how the military has influenced America's views and experiences of gender.

Recensioner i media

"Kara Vuic-one of the very best historians of gender, war, and the U.S. military-has given us a clearly-conceptualized and engaging set of essays which analyze the many ways that gender and war intersect in U.S. history. Perhaps there's no higher praise than to say that this volume is useful-to scholars, to students, to anyone interested in the history behind our contemporary debates over gender, war, and military service." Beth Bailey, University of Kansas "This well-conceived and beautifully executed collection explores the rich scholarship on gender and war and offers fresh perspectives on where we are in answering a number of questions-such as how gender shapes where and why Americans fight, how gender is harnessed to make war, and how new, but more often old, gender orders are reconstructed in war's aftermath." Judy Giesberg, Villanova University
