Product description


A tour de force.' -- CHOICE

‘Cook provides a comprehensive overview of US counterterrorism policy since 9/11. [Her] analysis usefully summarises and incorporates theories of feminist security studies … [and she] astutely observes how the promotion of women’s rights were executed in US national security and foreign policy-making and how they were often conflated with counterterrorism success.’ -- ― The Lowy Institute’s The Interpreter

'An authoritative assessment of the trajectory of the American-led war on terrorism from a thoroughly compelling and highly original perspective. Cook has an impressive command of the subject and her exegesis of its issues and challenges is clear and engaging.' -- Bruce Hoffman, Professor of Security Studies, Georgetown University, and author of 'Inside Terrorism'

'Cook provides a sweeping and yet detailed account of how the U.S. government has--and hasn't--incorporated women in understanding terrorism and its response. Covering counterterrorism from the Bush administration onward, "A Woman's Place" is a must-read on gender and security in the post-9/11 landscape.' -- Jayne Huckerby, Clinical Professor of Law, Duke University

'This book provides a new and important perspective of America's Wars on Terror. Comprehensive and superbly written!' -- Peter R. Neumann, Professor of Security Studies, King's College London

' "A Woman's Place" is a comprehensive examination of the multiple, diverse and critical roles played by women in counterterrorism. Joana Cook has produced a cornerstone text that is an extraordinary testament of the value of academic-practitioner engagement. Simply groundbreaking.' -- John Horgan, Professor of Psychology, Georgia State University

'Cook has assembled an impressive array of evidence to show the ways in which women "appear" in counterterrorism discourse. Her approach shows how the U.S. government has positioned women as agents, victims, and targets of the Global War on Terrorism. A novel, comprehensive, and illuminating read.' -- Erica Chenoweth, Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School
