MacKenzie is one of the rising international stars of feminist IR war studies and she's clearly one of the best. Her book moves elegantly and respectfully between events she researched in Sierra Leone and her theorizing on conjugal order and gendered insecurity when wars end. Many audiences will want this book, including organizations crafting post-war reconstruction, whose efforts can backfire on women. -Christine Sylvester, editor of "Feminist International Relations""
