"This is the best book on the implications of the ethics of care for global politics. In combining human security with a relational approach to care ethics, Robinson has written an essential contribution both to the fields of international relations and global ethics."
-Joan C. Tronto, University of Minnesota
"Anyone who is interested in understanding human security, gender, and their relationship will benefit from reading The Ethics of Care-its feminist approach to human security is theoretically sophisticated, innovative, and robust. This book's theoretical contribution is second only to its indispensability to understanding policy in a number of key areas-including sex economies, humanitarian intervention, peacebuilding, health, and the environment. It is a must read!"
-Laura Sjoberg, University of Florida
"Robinson's book is an important contribution to the literatures on human security on the one hand, and the feminist ethic of care on the other. The key strength of The Ethics of Care is the way that it demonstrates in detail the implications of a care approach for human security thinking across a range of domains. It is highly theoretically sophisticated in its account of care ethics, but also has the strong advantage of fleshing its consequences out in relation to empirical contexts and issues."
-Kimberly Hutchings, London School of Economics and Political Science
