Exploring the philosophical and political challenges of bridging feminist and ecological concerns, Ecofeminism as Politics argues that ecofeminism reaches beyond contemporary social movements as a political synthesis of four revolutions in one, taking in ecology, feminism, socialism, and postcolonial struggle.

Informed by a critical postmodern reading of Marxism, Ecofeminism as Politics integrates discourses on science, the body, culture, nature, and political economy. Highlighting the importance of finding commonalities between ecofeminist and indigenous struggles, Salleh offers a groundbreaking discussion of deep ecology, social ecology, eco-socialism, and postmodern feminism through the lens of an ecofeminist deconstruction.

About the Author:

Ariel Salleh is a research associate in political economy at the University of Sydney, Australia.

Review:

“The combination of eco-socialist, feminist and decolonial perspectives is analytically and politically thrilling. Ecofeminism as Politics offers an integrative understanding of our world, its multiple processes and crises, and possibilities for change.” (Ulrich Brand, University of Vienna, and coauthor of Theorizing the Imperial Mode of Living)

“Neoliberalism has not eliminated poverty, nor discrimination of women, nor exploitation of the Earth; neither economists, politicians, nor theoreticians know a way out. Marxists ignore both nature's and women's contribution to the production of wealth, but as ecofeminists show, this is the lost key to building Another World.” (Maria Mies, activist and author of Patriarchy and Accumulation on a World Scale)

“One of the most original and important thinkers in the international political ecology field. Salleh unveils the blind spot at the root of contemporary ecological and social crises and her lucid call for an ‘embodied materialism’ enlightens like no other framework I know.” (Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and author of Designs for the Pluriverse)

“This challenge to feminists, Marxists, and environmentalists, is sustained by a deep knowledge of struggles on the ground by women's, worker's, indigenous, and ecological groups. As integrative political actions are called for, their effectiveness depends on multi-dimensional theory; and here is Salleh’s contribution.” (Lau Kin Chi, Lingnan University, Hong Kong, and founding member of the Global University for Sustainability)

“Salleh’s explanation of how ‘environmental struggle is socialist struggle is feminist struggle’ sets the standard for intersectional study of the crises we face in nature, economy and society - from global climate to household. In her praxis epistemology and labors for repair of the humanity-nature metabolism, we find the most passionate, humbling truths.” (Patrick Bond, University of Witwatersrand School of Governance, South Africa)

Ecofeminism as Politics makes a powerful critique of both anthropocentrism and the androcentric thinking that permeates scholarship and activist discourses on the Left. Its social movement synthesis is an essential read for those seeking solutions to our deepening systemic crises.” (Jackie Smith, University of Pittsburgh, and editor of the Journal of World-Systems Research)

"Perhaps Zed Books, in choosing to republish her book 20 years after it first came out, understood that Salleh's Ecofeminism as Politics was ahead of its time. . . . She is accurate when she observes that patriarchy impairs both left and right political thought. Regardless of political viewpoints, men must stop treating Earth like an inexhaustible larder and learn from those who nurture life, rather than destroy it." (Against the Current)
