ABSTRACT
The three volumes reviewed in this article offer a range of feminist explorations of the Iraq War. Through their gendered lenses, I argue that these books offer alternative ways of thinking about experiences, daily life and temporalities in war and post-war contexts. The books reviewed here can be loosely described as emphasising a standpoint feminist perspective, highlighting how gendered processes, practices, myths, images and expectations shape the day-to-day lives of men and women concerned with the Iraq War in both Iraq and the US. These insights can offer a challenge to the construction and reinforcement of the temporal division crafted between war and peace, making us think again about how we conceptualise violence in international politics.
