      THIS WIDE-RANGING ANTHOLOGY centres on the themes of women in conflict
      zones. Diverse authors compare the social, political, and economic
      situations of women during the civil wars in Sri Lanka and the former
      Yugoslavia. A range of perspectives offers the reader an opportunity to
      grasp the international dimensions of these issues.
      War is an ambivalent process for women. While on the one hand they suffer
      acutely from its violence, on the other, those living in traditional
      patriarchal societies may find that war is a time of release from the
      constricting hierarchies of peace-time existence. Different kinds of wars
      permit different kinds of female participation. Women are seldom simply
      victimized or empowered by war: their experiences are more complicated.

      Wenona Giles is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Women's Studies at
      York University, Toronto. All the contributors are members of the "Women in
      Conflict Zones Network."
