...stimulating feminist analyses of the international legal order...A well-written and forward-moving piece of scholarship. Nicole LaViolette Social and Legal Studies volume 16(1) ...provides the reader with a valuable analysis of feminist international law...helps the reader to reflect not only on where the discipline of feminist international law has arrived today, through a process of deepening and widening, but also on where it should go in the future. Christa Tobler Netherlands International Law Review Issue 1, 2007 This important collection succeeds in its aim of offering a 'snap-shot' of modern feminist approaches to international law, and would be useful to both students and scholars in this excellent introduction to feminist analyses of international law for those new to this field. Kirsten Campbell Feminist Legal Studies Jan 2006 Unlike many other collections of readings, this one cannot be critized for a lack of theoretical or conceptual coherence ... What follows is what is promised - stimulating feminist analyses of the international legal order...Buss and Manji have asembled an impressive group of academics to produce a well-written and forward-moving piece of scholarship...the essays take the reader on a wide-ranging tour of international feminist scholarship... This is a well-edited collection, with all contributions being of consistent quality in terms of substance, research and form. Nicole LaVialette The Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice, vol 24(2), 2006 ...the book succeeds in opening a much-needed conversation among international legal feminists about where we've been and where we're going, and most importantly, how we might reinvent the strategies for getting there. Treva Braun African Journal of International and Comparative Law Feb 06 might be tempted to ask whether a specifically feminist analysis of international law is not now redundant. However, the reader of this book is left in no doubt as to both its importance and timeliness. Loveday Hodson Human Rights Law Review Volume 6 issue 3, 2006
