Written by one of the world's leading feminist scholars, this masterful and provocative book considers the ways women's desires to be patriotic yet feminine and men's fears of being feminized explain how militarism is being globalizeda€”and thus what it will take to roll back militarization anywhere. Through explorations of how governments think so narrowly about qnational security, q of how postwar reconstruction efforts have marginalized women, of how ideas about feminization were used to humiliate male prisoners in Abu Ghraib, and of why qcamoq has become a fashion statement, Cynthia Enloe unravels militarism's both blatant and subtle workings. Focusing her lens on the qbig pictureq of international politics and on the small picture of women's and men's complex everyday lives, Enloe challenges us to recognize militarism in all its forms.American military interrogators and guards adoption of both painful a€œstress positionsa€ and feminization to intimidate ... Between April and June 2004, millions of viewers were looking at these private photos: American soldiers smiling ... surgical blue rubber gloves, a sign that this abuse was occurring in the age of AIDS.
