Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stories help illustrate how gendered politics change over the course of a war and how this thing we call war itself changes over time."--"Ms. Magazine"

"Enloe's new work is a great addition to her oeuvre on women, militarism and consumer culture in international perspective."--Carrie Rentschler"Times Higher Education" (08/26/2010)

Enloe s new work is a great addition to her oeuvre on women, militarism and consumer culture in international perspective. --Carrie Rentschler"Times Higher Education" (08/26/2010)"

From the Inside Flap

"Nimo's War, Emma's War is unique in examining the gendered dimension of the Iraq war, particularly its impact on ordinary Iraqi and American women, thereby revealing an important long-term cost of the conflict. Cynthia Enloe's approach and analysis are extremely original and innovative."—Nadje Al-Ali, author of What Kind of Liberation?: Women and the Occupation of Iraq

"Nimo's War, Emma's War is Cynthia Enloe's darkest and most strikingly conceived text to date. War is not 'in' Iraq and Afghanistan, where foreign militaries confront local people, rather it is everywhere, most particularly in 'peacetime' domestic spaces, 'civilian' employment, marital bedrooms and high schools."—Terrell Carver, author of Politics, Language and Metaphor

"Cynthia Enloe has pioneered the subject of women, militarism, and war in a series of revelatory books, including Bananas, Beaches, and Bases, The Morning After: Sexual Politics at the End of the Cold War, and Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives. Nimo's War, Emma's War is her best one yet."—Chalmers Johnson, author of The Blowback Trilogy

"Brilliantly researched, vividly written, Cynthia Enloe has gifted us with a new and different story of modern warfare. Entirely gripping and profoundly humane, every page raises new issues. To factor in Nimo and Emma—all the women and families touched by the carnage and agony of war, is to see the bitter range of tragedy community by community. To read this book is to ask: What are we doing to our children—all our children, combatants and civilians? How do women cope with post-war wounds and violence—agony, wreckage, displacement? Cynthia Enloe's book is essential reading for all students and journalists, public citizens and peace activists, who seek women's dignity, healthy societies, humane alternatives to the insanity of careless military destruction."—Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of The Declassified Eisenhower, Eleanor Roosevelt (vols I & II, III forthcoming)

Enloe approaches the Iraq war by examining the perspectives of 4 Iraqi women and 4 American women. This allows her explore the perspectives of women in terms of their roles and positions (like mother, daughter, teenager, wife etc.) in relation to the politics and dynamics of war. I got a fuller picture of the war because of Enloe's analysis and it is an invaluable contribution to the literature on the Iraq war.

A non-fictional account of women on both sides of the war. Not pretty. Definitely adds insight and perspective on this conflict. Each woman's story is well told in depth - the reader gets to know each of them well.

Very interesting book- a companion read for a women's studies class, Enloe did an incredible job of presenting alternate lenses for the Iraq war to be viewed through. Detailed, researched, tight writing.
