    Ideas of masculinity and femininity become sharply defined in war-reliant societies, resulting in a presumed enmity between men and women.

    Zimbabwe-specific study, focusing on the lives of women in a small locale (Chiweshe) during the anti-colonial insurgency, this book is also a challenge to established and still current modes of thought and research orientations which over-simplify the complex realities women face in the full range of violent conflicts, both past and present. By contextualizing... more...
