Class Struggle on the Homefront free pdf What is social class? How does social class interact with patriarchy and masculine domination to give shape to contemporary societies? What does Marxian economic theory add to the analysis of gendered domination and feminist critiques of power? These are some of the questions addressed by Home/Front. The authors of this volume of interdisciplinary scholarship use the anti-foundationalist Marxian economic theories first formulated by Stephen Resnick and Richard Wolff to answer these questions and explore power, domination, and exploitation in the modern household. Home/Front is divided into two parts. Part I examines the Marxian theory of the household first formulated by the Lacanian analyst Harriet Fraad and the Marxist economists Stephen Resnick and Richard Wolff. In Part II a select group of leading contemporary scholars apply an inter-disciplinary approach to issues of great importance addresses by the Marxian theory of the household. These topics include examinations of the multiple sources, both psychological and economic- cross cultural comparisons of the definition of 'home'- the effect of remittances on immigrant and non-immigrant households- the increasingly isolated character of household life in the United States- and the examination of the effects of patriarchy on the American labour movement. This book offers an approach to Marxism that is relevant to the politics of everyday life and contemporary crises. It is indispensable reading for all interested in Economic Theory, Sociology Theory, Gender Theory and Women's Studies.
