Revolution At Point Zero
2nd Edition: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle
Written between 1974 and 2012, Revolution at Point Zero collects forty years of research and theorising on the nature of housework, social reproduction, and women's struggles on this terrain - to escape it, to better its conditions, to reconstruct it in ways that provide an alternative to capitalist relations. Indeed, as Federici reveals, behind the capitalist organisation of work and the contradictions inherent in alienated labour is an explosive ground zero for revolutionary practice upon which are decided the daily realities of our collective reporduction.
Beginning with Federici's organisational work in the Wages for Housework movement, the essays collected here unravel the power and politics of wide but related issues including the international restructuring of reproductive works and its effects on the sexual division of labour, the globalisation of care work and sex work, the crisis of elder care, the development of affective labour, and the politics of the commons. this new and expanded edition contains two previously unpublished essays by the authors.
