Patriarchy and Accumulation on a World Scale – by Maria Miles
First published in 1986, Maria Mies’s progressive book was hailed as a major paradigm shift for feminist theory, and it remains a major contribution to development theory and practice today.
Tracing the social origins of the sexual division of labour, it offers a history of the related processes of colonization and ‘housewifization’ and extends this analysis to the contemporary new international division of labour. Mies’s theory of capitalist patriarchy has become even more relevant today.
This new edition includes a substantial new introduction in which she both applies her theory to the new globalized world and answers her critics.
