Product Description

About the Author

Maria Mies is a Marxist feminist scholar who is renowned for her theory of capitalist patriarchy, which recognizes third world women and difference. She is a professor of sociology at Cologne University of Applied Sciences, but retired from teaching in 1993. Since the late 1960s she has been involved with feminist activism. In 1979, at the Institute of Social Studies in The Hague, she founded the Women and Development programme. Her other titles published by Zed Books include The Lace Makers of Narsapur (1982), Women: The Last Colony (1988), The Subsistence Perspective (1999) and Ecofeminism (2014).

5.0 out of 5 stars A neglected class on feminist economics 9 July 2016
By chineseflowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a neglected classic by an eminent German political economist. Feminists who have focused on analyzing the cultural manifestations of patriarchy will find it an eye-opener as it explains feminist economics. Learn how women produce most of the world's food but are not allowed to accumulate a surplus on their wages, to own or manage more than a tiny fraction of the world's private land, and are the unpaid "base" of market economics with their subsistence, domestic, and reproductive labor. An inspiring writer with an important economic analysis.
