As the twenty-first century faces a crisis of democracy and sustainability, this book brings academics and alternative globalisation activists into discussion. Through studies of global neoliberalism, ecological debt, climate change, and the ongoing devaluation of reproductive and subsistence labour, these uncompromising essays by internationally distinguished women thinkers expose the limits of current scholarship in political economy, ecological economics, and sustainability science. With in-depth analyses of climate change, MDGs, financial meltdown, and new theoretical concepts for understanding humanity-nature links, this books is essential reading for students of political economy, ethics, global studies, sociology, women's studies, geography and environmental science.

[Eco-sufficiency] engages theory and practice, drawing inspiration from the many indigenous, peasant, worker, ecological and women's movements challenging the economic dimensions of oppression.Joy Paton, Journal of Australian Political Economy
With the conceptual rethinking that goes into the various chapters of this book comes a new vocabulary, including such terms as embodied debt, meta-industrial labor, eco-sufficiency, toxic immiseration, and metabolic value... In places both academic and activist in tone, this volume bears witness to the reshaping of disciplines such as economics and political science. It offers substantial critique of Marxist doctrines, appropriation of Foucault, and engagement with influential environmental economists such as Herman Daly in order to respond to the current crisis of the environment through thinking more inclusive of cultural 'others', including women.Bonnie Kime Scott, Australian Women's Book Review
