'If you want to understand the roots of the economic crisis, and of violence against women, read this book. If you want to create alternatives and participate in shaping living economies, read this book. Patriarchy and Accumulation is essential reading for all, more so today than when it was first written.'
Vandana Shiva, founder of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology and director at the International Forum on Globalization
'Feminist theory at its very best.'
Off Our Backs
'Compelling. One of the most ambitious projects undertaken by a feminist scholar in recent years.'
Deniz Kandiyoti, SOAS, University of London
'Maria Mies' vision is huge, the scale of her project breathtakingly bold.'
'A major contribution to authentic development theory and practice. Women cannot hope for justice from a mode of production built on subordination either as housewife in the West or cheap labour in the third world. Mies produces an alternative feminist concept of labour and some strategic elements of its implementation. The critique is compelling.'
