    One thought on “One of the Guys: Women as Aggressors and Torturers”

    1. Over halfway into this book I found myself still searching for something It was often repetitive, and I found myself constantly wondering when it was going to go deeper as I felt the authors danced around the issues and never really delved onto formulating solutions or responses to the issues raised Eventually my patience waned, and I returned it to its owner unfinisheda rare ending for me.

    2. An interesting collection of commentary that, through one event that of the Abu Ghraib prisoner photo scandal, epitomizes a discussion of liberal feminism vs feminism that believes women are naturally peaceful It s a quick read that poses some good food for thought on the current in the last 10 15 years current state of women in American culture and military culture.
