"A new edition from Marchand and Runyan is cause for celebration. They and their smart contributors show us here so graphically that the surprising twists and turns of today's globalizing trends cannot be realistically tracked without taking women's working lives and political resistances seriously." Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War. Emma's War. Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War.

"Bringing together leading scholars in international political economy. Gender and Global Restructuring illuminates the changing effects of neoliberal economic policies on the governance of intimacy, family formation, and the production of raced, gendered, sexualized identities. Sweeping in scope, the volume provides new insights into the complex dynamics of nationstates, international institutions, and transnational social movements as they grapple with increasing inequalities in the twenty-first century." Mary Hawkesworth, Rutgers University, Editor, Signs. Journal of Women in Culture and Society.

"An important and timely reconsideration of the ways in which global restructuring includes the restructuring of the `intimate'. As the cases in this volume remind us, reconfigurations of neoliberalism involve not only structural-level phenomena, but processes that both impact and depend upon subjects and subjectivities, race, gender and sexuality. This is particularly important not only in thinking through global restructuring in the post-9/11 era of economic dislocation and collapse, but as is demonstrated throughout this collection. it is central as well in locating sites of resistance." Sandra whitworth. Editor, International Feminist Journal of Politics, Professor of Political Science, York University, Canada.

"The second edition of Gender and Global Restructuring offers a sharp, updated, and compelling case for the centrality of transnational feminist frameworks in understanding and confronting the capitalist, heteronormative, racist patriachies that constitute neoliberal, imperial cultures at the current time. Contributors map the complex relationalities of the "intimate," the "local" and the "global," utilizing new feminist ethnographies and theoretical paradigms to foreground questions of women's agency and the political economy of militarized, imperial, capitalist global processes. An illuminating, indispensable book for anyone interested in making feminist sense of global power relations and the complex and varied genealogies of women's resistance to it." Chandra Talpade Mohanty, author of Feminism Without Borders: Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity (2003).
