This title traces the development of a new political perspective that would set out of redefine traditional views of the class struggle. Selma James' starting point is the millions of unwaged women who, despite working at home and on land, were not seen as workers.
"The publication of these essays reflects in concentrated form the history of the new society struggling to be born. Their appearance today could not be timelier. As the fruit of the collective experience of the last half-century, they will help to acquaint a whole new generation with not only what it means to think theoretically, but, more importantly, the requirement of organization as the means of testing those ideas. In this respect, Selma James embodies in these essays the spirit of the revolutionary tradition at its most relevant." --Dr. Robert A. Hill, Literary Executor of the estate of C.L.R. James, University of California, Los Angeles, Director, Marcus Garvey Papers Project
"It's time to acknowledge James's path-breaking analysis: from 1972 she re-interpreted the capitalist economy to show that it rests on the usually invisible unwaged caring work of women." --Dr. Peggy Antrobus, feminist, author of "The Global Women's Movement: Origins, Issues and Strategies "
"In this incisive and necessary collection of essays and talks spanning over five decades, Selma James reminds us that liberation cannot be handed down from above. This is a feminism that truly matters." --Dr. Alissa Trotz, Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies, Director of Caribbean Studies, University of Toronto
"Selma James reaffirms what has been evident for some time: she is--quite simply--not only one of the most outstanding feminist thinkers of her generation but, as well, an insightful and exceedingly intelligent political analyst." "--"Dr. Gerald Horne, John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies, University of Houston
"For clarity and commitment to Haiti's revolutionary legacy . . . Selma is a sister after my own heart." --Danny Glover, actor
"Stimulating writing on 60 years of practice and thought on how to build a better world for human beings. Hers is a gift of clarifying knotty issues which sprout from the troubling divisions that alienate us from each other, our work and ourselves, in words that people can grasp." --"Z Magazine" (May 2012)
"We should take this as a challenge to delve deeper into such campaigns and movements and bring these histories into our present-day organizing for a truly liberated society." --www.NewClearVision.com
