Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Every book has its curious life-history. While some soar to great heights of success on a wave of public acclaim, others quickly plunge into obscurity. Then there are those that live a largely underground existence, kept alive through the efforts of small bands of dedicated followers who spread the word in defiance of a larger silence. The latter is the story of Lise Vogels Marxism and the Oppression of Women: Toward a Unitary Theory.”

—From the new introduction by Sue Ferguson and David McNally

In this pioneering work of Marxist feminism, Lise Vogel revisits classic Marxist texts, tracking analyses of the “woman question” in socialist theory from Marx through the Russian Revolution. From this survey and through the use of the central theoretical concepts of Marx's Capital, Vogel opens up an original theory of gender and the social production and reproduction of material life. This new and updated edition includes Vogel's article “Domestic Labor Revisited”—which extends and clarifies her main theoretical innovations—as well as an extensive new introduction.

Synopsis:

Decades after initial publication, Vogel's book remains an essential contribution to the development of a materialist theory of gender oppression.
