The 'Man' Question in International Relations


International relations is still very much a man's field. Questioning & problematizing the subject-hood of men, this book of twelve original essays examines the various ways in which masculinities are implicated in international relations theories & practices. The contributors argue that if the subject of international relations is constructed around men & masculinity, then perhaps destabilizing the subject of "man" will help destabilize the whole field in ways that "adding women & stirring" has not. The feminist modern project of bringing attention to women can paradoxically highlight the fluidity of the subject of woman rather than reveal the solidity of her position, however illusory.
