Book Overview

Literary Nonfiction. CALIBAN AND THE WITCH is 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.

It is both a passionate work of memory recovered and a hammer of humanity's agenda.--Peter Linebaugh, author of The London Hanged

   Gender, Capitalism, Terrorism
The book showed how women were divided into genders as capitalism took over. The book shows how the lower classes were shocked by the terror campaigns and how they came to accept the loss of the commons. A dictionary or a search engine will solve the problem.

   Most Important book you’ll ever read
The book changed my perception of capitalism and feminism, as well as what came before and after it. The volume is well researched and hard to read.
 
2
   Too esoteric
The language is difficult for this person. I barely made it 20 pages and was exhausted. I was excited about this book, too. I might be able to tackle it again when I have more mental energy. If you are a reader who is not tired of complicated language, you might want to give it a try. The reviews are great.

   Amazing Book That Everyone Should Read
This book is very thought- provoking. The book places social responsibility on everyone to create an environment that is healthy, even if you are a victim of sexual assault. I loved this book because it wasn't shy about discussing deep topics and how Federici used history to back up her claims.

   The author has really poured her heart into her work
The book is crammed with history and I like that there are sources in it. We never were taught a history like that.
