Front Cover
Marianne H. Marchand, Anne Sisson Runyan
Routledge, Sep 13, 2010 - Political Science - 320 pages

In this new edition of this best selling text, interdisciplinary feminist experts from around the world provide new analyses of the ongoing relationship between gender and neoliberal globalization under the new imperialism in the post-9/11 context.

Divided into Sightings, Sites and Resistances, this book examines:

  • the disciplining politics of race, sexuality and modernity under securitized globalization, including case studies on domestic workers in Hong Kong
  • heteronormative development policies and responses to the crisis of social reproduction and colonizing responses to AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa
  • migration, human rights and citizenship, including studies on remittances, the emergence of neoliberal subjectivities among rural Mexican women, Filipina migrant workers and women’s labor organizing in the Middle East and North Africa
  • feminist resistance, incorporating the latest scholarship on transnational feminism and feminist critical globalization movement activism, including case studies on men’s violence on the Mexico/US border, pan-indigenous women’s movements and cyberfeminism.

Providing a coherent and challenging approach to the issues of gender and the processes of globalization in the new millennium, this important text will be of interest to students and scholars of IPE, international relations, economics, development and gender studies.
