Revolution at point zero : housework, reproduction, and feminist struggle by Silvia Federici( Book )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written between 1975 and the present, the essays collected in this volume represent years of research and theorizing on questions of social reproduction and the consequences of globalization. Originally inspired by Federici's organizational work in the Wages for Housework movement, the topics discussed include the international restructuring of reproductive work and its effects on the sexual division of labor, the globalization of care work and sex work, the crisis of elder care, and the development of affective labor. Both a brief history of the international feminist movement and a contemporary critique of capitalism, these writings continue the investigation of the economic roots of violence against women"--Provided by publisher
Caliban and the witch by Silvia Federici( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the battle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization

Patriarchy and accumulation on a world scale : women in the international division of labour by Maria Mies( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is my thesis that this general production of life, or subsistence production - mainly performed through the nonwage labour of women and other nonwage labourers as slaves, contract workers and peasants in the colonies - constitues the perennial basis upon which "capitalist productive labour" can be built up and exploited.' 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

Witch-hunting, Past and Present, and the Fear of the Power of Women = Hexenjagd, Vergangenheit und Gegenwart und die Angst vor der Macht der Frauen by Silvia Federici( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Cómo pudo ser que en la Europa de los siglos XV al XVIII miles de mujeres fueran acusadas de brujería, torturadas horriblemente y asesinadas? Esta pregunta provoca en Silvia Federici una mirada nueva al desarrollo del capitalismo hasta el extremo de la destrucción de relaciones sociales y de género, en las que se apoya dicho desarrollo. Además del peligro de la sexualidad femenina, la habilidad de las mujeres como sanadoras, herboristas, comadronas y fabricantes de filtros de amor se consideraba una amenaza en una época en que la interpretación mágica del cuerpo humano fue sustituida por una interpretación" racional" que lo reestructuró como población activa explotable. Con el fin de erradicar dichas amenazas, la caza de brujas se convirtió en un" régimen de terror" para todas las mujeres, que dio lugar a un nuevo modelo de femineidad: asexual, subordinada, confinada a la esfera de las actividades reproductoras

Caliban und die Hexe : Frauen, der Körper und die ursprüngliche Akkumulation by Silvia Federici( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caliban und die Hexe ist eine Geschichte des weiblichen wie auch des kolonialisierten Körpers während des Übergangs zum Kapitalismus. Ausgehend von den Bauernaufständen des späten Mittelalters und dem Aufstieg der mechanischen Philosophie untersucht Federici die kapitalistische Rationalisierung der gesellschaftlichen Reproduktion. Sie zeigt, wie der Kampf gegen den Widerstand von Körper und Geist eine wesentliche Bedingung für zwei grundlegende Prinzipien der gesellschaftlichen Organisation darstellt: die Entwicklung der Arbeitskraft und die Verfügung über das eigene Selbst. Jetzt in 4. Auflage mit einem neuen Vorwort der Autorin! Die anschaulich geschriebene Studie ist eine unverzichtbare Ergänzung der Marxschen Schilderung der >>Einhegung<< und ein wichtiger Schritt in Richtung eines neuerlichen Nachdenkens über Entstehung und Wesen kapitalistischer Verhältnisse.

Calibán y la bruja : mujeres, cuerpo y acumulación primitiva by Silvia Federici( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De la emancipación de la servidumbre a las herejías subversivas, un hilo rojo recorre la historia de la transición del feudalismo al capitalismo. La imposición de los poderes del Estado y el nacimiento del capitalimo no se produjeron sin el recurso a la violencia extrema. La acumulación originaria exigió la derrota de los movimientos urbanos y campesinos, que normalmente bajo la forma de herejía religiosa reivindicaron y pusieron en práctica diversos experimentos de vida comunal y reparto de riqueza. Su aniquilación abrió el camino a la formación del Estado moderno, la expropiación y cercado de las tierras comunes, la conquista y el expolio de América, la apertura del comercio de esclavos a gran escala y una guerra contra las formas de vida y las culturas populares que tomó a las mujeres como su principal objetivo. Al analizar la quema de brujas, Federici pone al descubierto una poderosa dinámica de expropiación social dirigida sobre el cuerpo, los saberes y la reproducción de las mujeres
Witches, witch-hunting, and women by Silvia Federici( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are witnessing a new surge of interpersonal and institutional violence against women, including new witch hunts. This surge of violence has occurred alongside an expansion of capitalist social relations. In this new work that revisits some of the main themes of Caliban and the Witch, Silvia Federici examines the root causes of these developments and outlines the consequences for the women affected and their communities. She argues that, no less than the witch hunts in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe and the "New World," this new war on women is a structural element of the new forms of capitalist accumulation. These processes are founded on the destruction of people's most basic means of reproduction. Like at the dawn of capitalism, what we discover behind today's violence against women are processes of enclosure, land dispossession, and the remolding of women's reproductive activities and subjectivity. As well as an investigation into the causes of this new violence, the book is also a feminist call to arms. Federici's work provides new ways of understanding the methods in which women are resisting victimization and offers a powerful reminder that reconstructing the memory of the past is crucial for the struggles of the present." --

Birth work as care work : stories from activist birth communities by Alana Apfel( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Birth Work as Care Work presents a vibrant collection of stories and insights from the front lines of birth activist communities. The personal has once more becomes political, and birth workers, supporters, and doulas now find themselves at the fore of collective struggles for freedom and dignity. Articulating a politics of care work in and through the reproductive process, the book brings diverse voices into conversation to explore multiple possibilities and avenues for change. At a moment when agency over our childbirth experiences is increasingly centralized in the hands of professional elites, Birth Work as Care Work presents creative new ways to reimagine the trajectory of our reproductive processes. Most importantly, the contributors present new ways of thinking about the entire life cycle, providing a unique and creative entry point into the essence of all human struggle -- the struggle over the reproduction of life itself
