Ecofeminism as Politics is now a classic, being the firstwork to offer a joined-up framework for green, socialist, feminist andpostcolonial thinking, showing how these have been held back by conceptual confusionsover gender.

Originally published in 1997, it argues that ecofeminism reachesbeyond contemporary social movement ideologies and practices, by prefiguring apolitical synthesis of four-revolutions-in-one: ecology is feminism issocialism is postcolonial struggle. Ariel Salleh addresses discourses on class,science, the body, culture and nature, and her innovative reading of Marxconverges the philosophy of internal relations with the organic materiality ofeveryday life.

This new edition features forewords by Indian ecofeministVandana Shiva and US philosopher John Clark, a new introduction, and a recentconversation between Salleh and younger scholar activists.
