antiMILITARISM: Political and gender dynamics of peace movements

OUT NOW!

In this new book Cynthia Cockburn presents case studies of anti-war, anti-militarist and peace movements in Japan, South Korea, Spain, Uganda and the UK, of international networks against military conscription and the proliferation of guns, and of singular campaigns addressing aggression against Palestinians.

Writing between the nihilistic view that violence is inevitable and the utopian belief in the possibility of a violence-free world, Cockburn carefully uncovers the movements’ many tensions and antagonisms through a gendered lens.

Praise for Antimilitarism:

’Students of social movements, masculinities, feminisms and militarism will each be smarter for having read Cynthia Cockburn.’ - Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo’s War, Emma’s War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War
