Summary:
This powerful new book argues that violence against women should be understood as a systemic problem--one for which the state must be held accountable. The essays in Gender Violence in Peace and War examine a variety of cases where the state facilitates, legitimates, or perpetuates violence against women--a continuum that ranges from state-sponsored rape and torture in Guatemala, Indonesia, and Kenya to lax prosecution of domestic violence and sex trafficking in Russia and the United States.
