This unique collection of theoretical and empirical research on gender and politics assembles contributions from an impressive group of international scholars providing varied accounts of the political interests of gender. It illustrates concretely how to bridge the gap between discursive and socio-materialist accounts of gender relations and politics. Offering fresh models for theoretical and empirical research, the first five chapters provide a theoretical framework for the collection, while the following eight chapters shed light on key concepts through detailed case studies of such topics as human rights, women's movements, gendered labour markets, international monetary policy, equality policy, and queer politics.
