Ecofeminism as Politics: Nature, Marx and the Postmodern

ISBN: 9781786990402

Published 15 August 2017

By Ariel Salleh
With Forewords by Vandana Shiva and John Clark

* A vastly updated new edition of Ariel Salleh’s landmark exploration of the relationship between feminism and ecology
* Shows the relevance of contemporary feminist and ecology movements to current discourses on development, environmental philosophy, Marxist and gender theory
* Features a new foreword from environmentalist icon Vandana Shiva

Ecofeminism as Politics is now a classic, being the first work to offer a joined-up framework for green, socialist, feminist and postcolonial thinking, showing how these have been held back by conceptual confusions over gender. Originally published in 1997, it argues that ecofeminism reaches beyond contemporary social movement ideologies and practices, by prefiguring a political synthesis of four-revolutions-in-one: ecology is feminism is socialism is postcolonial struggle. Ariel Salleh addresses discourses on class, science, the body, culture and nature, and her innovative reading of
Marx converges the philosophy of internal relations with the organic materiality of everyday life.

This new edition features forewords by Indian ecofeminist Vandana Shiva and US philosopher John Clark, a new introduction, and a recent conversation between Salleh and younger scholar activists.

Ariel Salleh is a founding member of the Global University for Sustainability, Hong Kong; a visiting professor of culture, philosophy and environment at Nelson Mandela University; and a research associate in political economy at the University of Sydney. She also co-founded the Movement Against Uranium Mining in Australia.
