Summary: In this brand new radical analysis of globalization, Cynthia Enloe examines recent events-Bangladeshi garment factory deaths, domestic workers in the Persian Gulf, Chinese global tourists, and the UN gender politics of guns-to reveal the crucial role of women in international politics today. With all new and updated chapters, 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. Enloe offers a feminist gender analysis of the global politics of both masculinities.
