Product description


"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

"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

"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

"Cook provides a comprehensive overview of US counterterrorism policy since 9/11. [Her] analysis usefully summarizes 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
