About the book:

This radical analysis of globalization reveals the crucial role of women in international politics today. Cynthia Enloe pulls back the curtain on the familiar scenesgovernments promoting tourism, companies moving their factories overseas, soldiers serving on foreign soiland shows that the real landscape is not exclusively male. She describes how many women's seemingly personal strategiesin their marriages, in their housework, in their coping with ideals of beautyare, in reality, the stuff of global politics. In exposing policymakers' reliance on false notions of "femininity" and "masculinity," Enloe dismantles an apparently overwhelming world system, revealing it to be much more fragile and open to change than we think.
