In this exploration of women and work, Maria Mies and her co-authors have specialized in researching the condition of women in Third World countries. They use their general investigations and particular case studies in order to advance feminist theory's understanding of women under capitalism . This book throws valuable light on how Marxist political economy often still bypasses women, and so limits understanding of historical processes.
