Caliban and the Witch: Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation

Product Description

Imported from USA

Literary Nonfiction. CALIBAN AND THE WITCH is 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.

"It is both a passionate work of memory recovered and a hammer of humanity's agenda."—Peter Linebaugh, author of The
London Hanged
