Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dubravka Žarkov’s remarkable book brings new insights to bear on the feminist theorizing of war. Nuanced, complex, lucid, and empirically grounded, Žarkov’s powerful combination of the insider’s understanding, passion, and emotional attachment with the academic’s distance and rigor, makes this a hard-to-put-down read.”—Urvashi Butalia, author of The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India


“Theoretically sophisticated and passionately argued, The Body of War shows how women’s (and men’s) bodies are implicated in the war in former Yugoslavia and its aftermath. Dubravka Žarkov courageously goes where others have feared to tread, rejecting too-easy assumptions that this was just a conflict between ethnic groups. Her book is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in the ways gender and sexuality intersect to produce differences in ethnicity, thereby creating the pretext and the context for conflict and war.”—Kathy Davis, author of The Making of Our Bodies, Ourselves: How Feminism Travels across Borders

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is really excellent! Zarkov treats the three, equally complicated subjects of gender, media, and the conflicts in ex-Yu each with the same careful nuance. The text may be a bit dense for some, but if you have an interest in gender and media, and/or in the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s, you will likely get a lot from this text. Zarkov is an excellent writer and a keen thinker. This is a highly relevant, important text that I hope will get a lot of attention!
