Full title: Caliban and the witch : women, the body and primitive accumulation / Silvia Federici.
Main author: Federici, Silvia, (Author)
Format: Book           
Edition: Second, revised edition.


Summary: A history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the battle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization.
