References to a number of works on gender and international politics by both historians and political scientists can be found in the recent review essay by Brenda Gayle Plummer, "The Changing Face of Diplomatic History: A Literature Review." _The History Teacher_ 38.3 (2005): 28 pars. 7 Apr. 2006 <http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/ht/38.3/plummer.html> On the diplomatic history side, Emily Rosenberg, Petra Goedde, and Frank Costigliola have written on gender and DH. For cites and commentaries on Rosenberg and Goedde, see, in addition to Plummer's essay: http://www.h-net.org/~diplo/commentaries/dh/dh1999.html Enloe's work, mentioned by Hardy and Schuman (and Plummer cites her other works as well), is more empirical than most of the treatments in the IR literature, but this depends on whether one is more interested in the experiences of women in international history or whether one is concerned with theoretical questions of gender, which covers both masculinity and femininity. On the latter and not mentioned by Plummer see: Christine Sylvester. _Feminist international relations : an unfinished journey_ (Cambridge University Press, 2002.) J. Ann Tickner. _Gendering world politics : issues and approaches in the post-Cold War era _ (Columbia University Press, 2001). For an early overview of this literature in IR, see Sylvester's essay for the International Studies Association at: http://www.isanet.org/sections/ftgs/femir.html Christopher L.
