"... lively and well-written contributions draw on and deploy many arguments and distinctions familiar within contemporary political philosophy, set out in a pleasingly non-technical fashion ... this book could serve as an introduction to a range of contemporary debates, not only concerning the definition and fortunes of capitalism, but also the analysis of freedom, the justification of private property, and the difficulties of collective rationality, among other key issues ... an excellent account of the issues."
Jonathan Wolff, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"... should be widely read, discussed, and debated ..."
Julie P. Torrant, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
"Cudd and Holmstrom grapple with the issue of whether capitalism and women's interests can coincide ... an interesting book written by two splendid analytical minds with a great passion for women's rights ... this volume will be of critical interest to anyone studying feminist political philosophy. It will be an invaluable introduction for students of gender studies, sociology, politics, and political economy."
Philosophy in Review
Ann Cudd and Nancy Holmstrom debate whether capitalism is valuable as an ideal for women. They cover a broad range of social and economic issues, and examine how to analyse effectively what constitutes 'capitalism' and 'women's interests'.
