Women and Gender Perspectives in the Military
Women and Gender Perspectives in the Military, edited by Dr. Robert Egnell and Mayesha Alam, compares the integration of women, gender perspectives, and the women, peace, and security agenda into the armed forces of eight countries plus NATO and United Nations peacekeeping operations. This book brings a much-needed cross-national analysis of how militaries have or have not improved gender balance, what has or has not worked, and who have been the agents for change.
