  3. Read this for an Anthropology of Globalization class Enloe presents some really eye opening information for those of us who are just beginning to explore globalization The feminist perspective she applies here adds an even greater dimension to the material she deals with One of the enjoyable required texts I ve had to read.


  4. It is obvious that this book is written for undergraduates Which is obviously fine, just a bit disappointing considering what a book on the topic of militarization written from a feminist perspective could be.
