The Myth of the Military-Nation. Militarism, Gender, and Education in Turkey

By Ayse Gül Altinay
Palgrave Macmillan, 2005
ISBN: 978-1-4039-7283-5

"With all the news about Turkish politics due to the Cyprus, Iraq and EU debates, now is exactly the time for all of us to read this smart feminist investigation of the Turkish political interplay between masculinity, men, statist nationalism and soldiering. Altinay is one of the most insightful political anthropologists I know."
Cynthia Enloe, author of Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives.

Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives

By Cynthia Enloe
University of California Press, 2000
ISBN: 978-0520220713

Enloe outlines the dilemmas feminists around the globe face in trying to craft theories and strategies that support militarised women, locally and internationally, without unwittingly being militarised themselves. She explores the complicated militarised experiences of women as prostitutes, as rape victims, as mothers, as wives, as nurses, and as feminist activists, and she uncovers the "maneuvers" that military officials and their civilian supporters have made in order to ensure that each of these groups of women feel special and separate.
