The United Nations System of National Accounts (UNSNA) forms the basic national account statistics used in annual reports from agencies such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Waring, a feminist, environmental advocate, and member of the New Zealand Parliament from 1975-84, charges that UNSNA acts to sustain the institutionalized enslavement of women by focusing solely on production and consumption in the market sphere, thereby rendering women's unpaid work invisible. While her book is more polemic than academic, Waring has nonetheless amassed an amazing amount of statisticcal detail to support her thesis, and she shows formidable skill in synthesizing the thoughts of others for her cause. This is an important book for all women's studies and economics collections.- Christy Zlatos, Auburn Univ. Lib., Ala.
