This book examines what happens to women and gender relations in times of upheaval. The experience of Norway during World War II, with some visits to other parts of the world as well, is used to demonstrate general, gendered issues that are actualized in wars both past and present. The authors explore whether gendered cultural conceptions influence the way war is remembered and represented, both collectively and individually. The collection discusses the various roles of women during the war from resistance fighter to `German tart’ and how they were dealt with and treated in the aftermath. The chapters examine the position of Jewish victims of persecution, foreign female labourers and gay men, as well as the gendered response exhibited by the courts in post-war trials of female state police employees. The book concludes by following the struggle to bring women’s role in war and peacebuilding onto the international agenda. This book will be of interest to students and scholars in the field of criminology, as well as peace and conflict studies, political science, sociology of law, history, social work, social pedagogy, psychology and gender studies.

Sexual violence and exploitation occur in many conflict zones, and the children born of such acts face discrimination, stigma, and infanticide. Yet the massive transnational network of organizations working to protect war-affected children has, for two decades, remained curiously silent on the needs of this vulnerable population. Focusing specifically on the case of Bosnia-Herzegovina, R. Charli Carpenter questions the framing of atrocity by human rights organizations and the limitations these narratives impose on their response. She finds that human rights groups set their agendas according to certain grievances-the claims of female rape victims or the complaints of aggrieved minorities, for example-and that these concerns can overshadow the needs of others. Incorporating her research into a host of other conflict zones, Carpenter shows that the social construction of rights claims is contingent upon the social construction of wrongs. According to Carpenter, this pathology prevents the full protection of children born of war.

"Ein Meisterwerk der Weltliteratur." Die Welt. Der junge Niederländer Alfred Issendorff strebt nach Ruhm und akademischem Lorbeer Er will in die Geschichte seiner Wissenschaft eingehen. Das könnte gelingen, wenn er es fertigbringt, eine These seines Professors zu beweisen. Der vermutet nämlich, dass bestimmte Seen in der Finnmark durch Einschläge von Meteoriten entstanden sind. Issendorf reist nach Troms und schließt sich einer geologischen Expedition an, die ins nördliche Norwegen unterwegs ist. Die Erkundungen dort finden unter ungeheuerlichen Strapazen statt, in einer Gegend, in der kaum jemand vorher gewesen ist. Allen vier Beteiligten wird das Äußerste abverlangt und Issendorf beschwört durch seine Leichtfertigkeit die Katastrophe herauf. Orientierungslos irrt er tagelang allein umher. Als er in die Zivilisation zurückfindet, ist er zwar Zeuge eines unheimlichen Lichtphänomens geworden, doch hat er den Tod eines Freundes auf dem Gewissen. Voller Sarkasmus und dabei unglaublich fesselnd erzählt Willem Frederik Hermans von Grenzsituationen und kläglichem Scheitern. Und nicht von ungefähr beschleicht den Leser mitunter das Gefühl, auch er könnte angesprochen sein.

This short and well-written overview provides essential information on the history of international organizations (IOs), with particular focus on the League of Nations, the development of the United Nations, and the UN system. Starting at the beginning of the twentieth century, when there were very few international organizations in existence, A World Beyond Borders traces the growth of IOs through to the close of the century, when there were literally thousands at the heart of the international system. Following this chronological order, the book examines how international organizations became the major legal, moral, and cultural forces that they are today, involved in all aspects of international relations including peacekeeping, disarmament, peace resolution, human rights, diplomacy, and environmentalism. This book is the first in the Canadian Historical Association / University of Toronto Press International Themes and Issues Series, which is dedicated to publishing concise, focused overviews of topics that are of international significance in the study of history.

The US military has an exemplary set of rules governing both race relations and gender discrimination, and yet it has experienced repeated sex scandals and long-lingering racial tensions. This work takes on this paradox and critically examines the reasons underlying it. Tailhook and Aberdeen show that getting the rules right is not enough. Looking at institutional culture, however, shows us how the norms and daily practices of military life may condone and even encourage continued harassment and discrimination.
