'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' progressive book was hailed as a major paradigm shift for feminist theory and remains a major contribution to development theory and practice today

Tracing the social origins of the sexual division of labor it offers a history of the related processes of colonization and "housewifization" and extends this analysis to the contemporary new international division of labor. Mies' 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.
