Discovering hope in the lost continent 5

The New Politics of Gender Equality. First Edition

November 23, 2007

An assessment of the key political initiatives used to pursue gender equality worldwide, providing an explanation of the central features of gender quotas, women's policy agencies and gender mainstreaming.

Who is it for? Students, lecturers and researchers in the fields of politics/gender studies.

Presentation: Very clear, if a little colourless.

Would you recommend it? For those who want the latest research and thinking from an important researcher in this area, yes. For specialists, or those concentrating on these issues, certainly; for others, or generalists, perhaps not.

Alex Danchev is professor of international relations at Nottingham University.
