Description - Gender and Nation by Nira Yuval-Davis
This text provides a critique of the literature on gender and nationhood and an analysis of the ways in which gender relations are affected by national projects and processes. It argues that "nationhood" usually involves specific notions of "manhood" and "womanhood", although their explicit inclusion in the analytical discourse around nations and nationalism is recent. The book also examines the contribution of gender relations to key dimensions of nationalist projects - national reproduction, national culture, citizenship, national conflicts and wars. The book differentiates national projects from "nation-states".
