Description

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

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
