Mapping Social Reproduction Theory

Capitalism is a system of exploitation and oppression. This series uses the insights of Social Reproduction Theory to deepen our understanding of the intimacy of that relationship, and the contradictions within it, past and present. The books include empirical investigations of the ways in which social oppressions of race, sexuality, ability, gender and more inhabit, shape and are shaped by the processes of creating labour power for capital. As well, the books in this series engage a critical exploration of Social Reproduction, enjoining debates about the theoretical and political tools required to challenge capitalism today.
