"Postcards, museums, river steamers, friendly guide books, and sunbathers—Debbie Lisle shows here that each of these can be made to serve military objectives or to reinforce militarized, gendered, and racialized presumptions about this world and our alleged places in it. Holidays in the Danger Zone is sure to spark new conversations and fresh investigations."—Cynthia Enloe, author of Bananas, Beaches and Bases: Making Feminist Sense of International Politics
"In this fascinating global adventure through historical archives, evocative images, and contemporary accounts of places mundane and exotic, Debbie Lisle takes us across the frontlines from tourism studies to critical war studies (and back, a few times) in order to explore the shared spaces and unexpected engagements between war and leisure."—Waleed Hazbun, author of Beaches, Ruins, Resorts: The Politics of Tourism in the Arab World
Debbie Lisle is a reader in international relations in the School of Politics, International Studies, and Philosophy at Queen’s University Belfast. Her books include The Global Politics of Contemporary Travel Writing.
