Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War?
Forthcoming book in the Africa Now series
'Perceptions, Prescriptions, Problems in the Congo and Beyond' by Maria Eriksson Baaz and Maria Stern, the book is available in May 2013:

In this provocative but much-needed book, Eriksson Baaz and Stern challenge the dominant understandings of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings.
