Abstract: »Carol Mann looks at the role of women in war, examining, in part, rape as a weapon or war in a number of conflicts. With respect to the ongoing US and NATO war with the Taliban in Afghanistan, she argues, in reference to the origins of war, that women "remain one of the major excuses to start or pursue a war, often to justify colonialist expansion." Mann accordingly examines how gender roles have been instrumentalized in wartime propaganda.« [Hall Gardner and Oleg Kobtzeff. »General Introduction: Polemology.« The Ashgate Research Companion to War: Origins and Prevention. Edited by Hall Gardner et al. Farnham 2012: 29]
