Human Security: Feminist Perspectives
is a significant contribution in terms of
revisting human security from a feminist
perspective and expanding out understanding of
what constitutes human security.
The organization of the text provides a useful
analysis of the relationship between the local
and global, and the role that feminist
analysis can play in restoring human security
in the context of contemporary economic
the onset of globalization, women of the
developing world have been severely affected.
The changing relations and negotiations with
the state as reflected in the lives of these
women are well brought out in this collection
of essays…The issues that the contributors
raise are extremely important to prevent
globalization from becoming a male discourse.
