Editorial Reviews


"An extraordinarily helpful and enlightening work for both non-contract and contract theorists alike, and for everyone concerned with racial, gender and class inequality."
Political Studies Review

"Charles Mills and Carole Pateman are two exemplary philosophers of freedom. This book is a grand contribution to our understanding of justice. Don't miss it!"
Cornel West, Princeton University

"A provocative book that hopefully will generate intense debate and discussion."
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society

"Engaging and often thought-provoking ... [Contract and Domination] raises good questions and portends more research into the continued viability of contracts as a basis for thinking about law."
Law and Politics Book Review

"This is the most sustained intersectional analysis of race and gender to date, providing a theoretical account of how these categories connect, overlap, mediate one another, and comparatively structure oppression. It is also a debate in political philosophy over the utility of the contract model for conceptualizing a more just society. The disagreements between the authors will make this book especially fruitful for classroom use."
Lind Martin Alcoff, Syracuse University

Book Description

In 1988, Carole Pateman first published her groundbreaking work, The Sexual Contract. Almost a decade later Charles Mills published The Racial Contract, and both books have been hugely influential in the field of political theory ever since. Both took a new direction by confronting mainstream contract theory. This new book, written collaboratively by Pateman and Mills takes their respective arguments about contract theory a stage further. It answers questions raised by the various critics of the two volumes, debates the authorsrsquo; differences about contract theory and its future and also examines the intersection between race and gender and brings this together with scholarship on class. This is a one-off opportunity to explore the work of these two theorists in greater depth. It is also the only book currently available that addresses contract theory via issues of gender and race. This book will appeal to students and scholars in political science and theory, history, anthropology, gender studies, ethnic studies, post colonial theory and philosophy
