'P>'/P>'P>This book analyses the various ways counterinsurgency in Afghanistan is gendered. '/P>'P>The book examines the US :led war :in Afghanistan from 2001 onwards including the invasion the populationcentric counterinsurgency operations and the efforts to train a new Afghan military charged with securing the country when the US and NATO withdrew :their combat forces in 2014. Through an analysis of key counterinsurgency texts and military memoirs the book explores how gender and counterinsurgency are coconstitutive in numerous ways. It discusses the multiple military masculinities that counterinsurgency relies on the discourse of ścultural sensitivity and the deployment of Female Engagement Teams (FETs). 'I>Gendering Counterinsurgency'/I> demonstrates how populationcentric counterinsurgency doctrine and practice can be captured within a gendered dynamic of śkilling and caring reliant on physical violence albeit mediated through śarmed social work. This simultaneously contradictory and complementary dynamic cannot be understood without recognising how the legitimation and the practice of this war relied on multiple gendered embodied performances of masculinities and femininities. Developing the concept of śembodied performativity this book shows how the clues to understanding counterinsurgency as well as :gendering war more broadly are found in wars everyday gendered manifestations.'/P>'P>This book will be of much interest to students of counterinsurgency warfare gender politics governmentality biopolitics critical war studies and critical security studies in general.'P>'/P>'P>Introduction: Gendering the War in Afghanistan'/P>'P>1.
