Contributors discuss the subtle and complex relationships between various notions of "feminism" and "peace." Feminist peace issues are explored along a wide spectrum of personal and political issues-from the personal violations of rape, incest, and domestic abuse, to the violence of racism, sexism, economic exploitation, war, and genocide. Topics of individual essays include the effects of the Green Revolution on indigenous women, understanding self-immolation as an act in support of peace, "just-war" theory, the technology of genocide, feminist justice, feminist peace politics, and how abuse of women, children, and pets is connected to the violence of patriarchal culture.
