The titles that spring to mind are from U.S. history. A useful collection of essays on the role of women in the history of U.S. foreign relations is Edward Crapol, _Women and American Foreign Policy: Lobbyists, Critics, and Insiders_. The notes and selected bibliography should prove fruitful for finding other sources, if the chapters are not directly useful. Obviously, gender analysis defined broadly would include looking at masculinity as a shaping factor, not just the role of women. One provocative example would be Michael C.C. Adams' work, _The Great Adventure: Male Desire and the Coming of World War I_. One might find this coverage useful for getting at "the other side" of the gender line or getting at the question of "the old boys' network." For a description of another type of masculine community engaged in foreign policy, see Robert Dean, _Imperial Brotherhood: Gender and the Making of Cold War Foreign Policy_.
