_Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society_ has posted a review essay of work written on female suicide bombers. The author, Claudia Brunner, Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies, Humboldt University, Berlin, has also reviewed my book, _Female Suicide Bombers_. She accurately states, "Skaine consistently refers to "the female bombers as women in war" (2006, 5). Thus she frames her book as an effort to provide appropriate knowledge for counterterrorism purposes. She deploys her expertise to generate an account that will enable the United States to combat (female) suicide bombing in the future. Within an explicit war framework, Skaine recognizes women as legitimate rational actors in violent organizations (2006, 171)." However, Brunner raises some legitimate but not necessarily all are accurate reflections.
