‘The combination of eco-socialist, feminist and decolonial perspectives is analytically and politically thrilling. Ecofeminism as Politics offers an integrative understanding of our world.’
Ulrich Brand, co-author of Theorizing the Imperial Mode of Living
‘Neoliberalism has not eliminated poverty, nor discrimination of women, nor exploitation of the Earth; neither economists, politicians, nor theoreticians know a way out. Marxists ignore both nature's and women's contribution to the production of wealth, but as ecofeminists show, this is the lost key to building another world.’
Maria Mies, ecofeminist activist and author of Patriarchy and Accumulation on a World Scale
‘One of the most original and important thinkers in the international political ecology field.’
Arturo Escobar, author of Designs for the Pluriverse
‘Its social movement synthesis is an essential read for those seeking solutions to our deepening systemic crises.’
Jackie Smith, editor of the Journal of World-Systems Research
‘Sets the standard for intersectional study of the crises we face in nature, economy and society - from global climate to household.’
Patrick Bond, University of Witwatersrand School of Governance
‘Ecofeminism as Politics has pioneered the integration of social movement debates. Salleh is a must-read authority on how to challenge capitalism in theory and as practice in the twenty-first century’.
Adam David Morton, author of Revolution and State in Modern Mexico
Praise for the First Edition:
'I place Ariel Salleh’s scholarship in the front rank with the work of other socialist ecofeminists such as Vandana Shiva or ecofeminists generally like Rosemary Ruether and Susan Griffin.'
Max Oelschlaeger, author of Caring for Creation
'In a feisty attack on the view of feminism and environmentalism as single issue, disconnected movements, Ariel Salleh convincingly argues that ecofeminist politics will be the strongest force in the world against environmental depredation, economic exploitation and cultural globalisation.'
Joan Martinez-Alier, editor of Ecologica Politica
