That many of the authors have considerable activist experience as well as a strong academic background adds considerable authority to awork of this type... excellent chapter... analytically sophisticated and empirically informative... In sum the volume offers a rich and rewarding account of women's politics and will be profitably read by all those interested in analysing decision-making process and understanding the politics of policy change in international relations... -- John MacMillan, Keele University Millennium: Journal of International Studies, Vol.28, No.3 This constitutes a very useful text for students and teachers alike. All of the contributions are well-written, clear and accessible and there is a useful appendix which sets out the UN system and how it works. This book should be recommended reading for students on global governance courses as well as more specialized gender and international relations / politics options. -- Jill Steans, University of Keele International Affairs, Vol.75, No.4, Oct.1999 For International Relations specialists this book is a must-read. Feminist Collections: A Quarterly Of Women's Studies Resources This is a very useful introductory text book to issues of international feminism and women and politics at an international level. Irish Journal Of Feminist Studies An important lesson one learns from reading these rich case studies is: asking the sort of feminist questions that have shed so much light on local militaries and welfare bureaucracies can produce equivalent revelations about the masculinist political cultures and everyday workings of international agencies. After one reads Gender Politics in Global Governance, the UN, OAS, and EU will never look the same, nor will feminist activism. This is a breakthrough book. -- Cynthia Enloe, author of Bananas, Beaches, and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics Provides a wealth of material that contributes to the understanding of the dynamics of global governance more broadly. That many of the authors have considerable activist experience as well as a strong academic background adds considerable authority to a work of this type... excellent chapter... analytically sophisticated and empirically informative... In sum the volume offers a rich and rewarding account of women's politics and will be profitably read by all those interested in analysing decision-making process and understanding the politics of policy change in international relations. -- John MacMillan, Keele University Millennium: Journal of International Studies, Vol.28, No.3 It is well worth the attention of those who study and teach international relations as well as those concerned to understand the involvement of women with political action.
