Shop on Barnes & Noble


This very readable book provides an excellent introduction to the main issues involved in the relationship between the achievement of peace and the enhancement of the status of women. The author demonstrates the importance of empowering women to participate in the decision-making processes involved in the maintenance of peace and security at all levels—within the community, nationally, and internationally—and explains what has been done by the United Nations, and by women's groups, to bring this about. The book also provides an excellent basis for discussion and study with regard to human rights and international relations. — Jeanne Vickers, author, Women and the World Economic Crisis, Women and WarReardon's book examines those ingredients necessary to reconstruct a society free of the competitive, violent, and war-centered methods that define today's reality, replacing it with one exhibiting the egalitarian, holistic, and cooperative patterns rooted in women's culture and experience but applicable to all of society, women and men alike. — Diana Sheridan, Associate Director, Center for the Study of Women in Society, University of OregonBetty Reardon's voice comes through in this book so strongly and so clearly. Her work is a breath of fresh air in contrast to the over-intellectualized and off-putting self importance of so much contemporary academic writing. I also appreciate the ways she weaves together very diverse historical events into a colorful and complex tapestry.— Leslie Scott, Peace Studies, University of Oregon
