'... a tantalizing read that teases the reader into critical reflection about feminist theory and IR theory as much through its style as through its substantive claims. Most of all, it provokes the reader through its refusal to assert any definitive conclusion about what feminism brings to IR or IR to feminism. The book is more than an intellectual autobiography (though it certainly is that) - it also a serious contribution to the ongoing dialogue between feminist and IR theory.'
