Val Fullard Interior Design: Women and the gift economy: Includes bibliographical references and index. Gifts — economic aspects. Indigenous peoples — Economic conditions.
Sharing — Economic aspects. Mutualism — Economic aspects. Vaughan, Genevieve, HQ This is the book we urgently need in these neoliberal, destructive, disoriented times. We all know that a profound change in our economy and culture is necessary, that we need to think in another way. Beyond the Globalized Economy and Women: The Last Colony Wow, what a great book.
If more people could embrace this kind of thinking the world would be a much better place. Thus according to our traditions the creators of this volume deserve special recognition as their work is a gift for the rest of us who have the privilege of reading it.
This anthology, Women and the Gift Economy, offers the fruit of myriad scholars on the subject, examining the gift economy from nearly every imaginable vantage point—from history, spirituality, sexuality, and matriarchal social structure to language, finance, childcare, and warfare.
Women and the Gift Economy is guaranteed to guide the reader into new and invigorating paradigms, clarifying the economic choices facing humanity. The Gantowisas and editor of and contributor to Daughters of Mother Earth Genevieve Vaughan has for decades been active in progressive causes—generous with her time, energy, and material resources.
Now she gives the best gift of all: This is, simply, a visionary book.
Read it, let it into your heart and brain—and you will change the world. Gifting operates especially well among people with fewer resources, in rural areas and urban townships.
It is through sharing gifts that many of us survive. In this, the book is an invaluable contribution to motherhood studies. In the introduction Vaughan outlines the logic and impact of the gift economy. This is a must read for feminists in all countries for it provides a coherent philosophical system based on the power of nurturing for rethinking political and economic thought just as the Enlightenment once based its philosophical innovations on the power of human reason.
Genevieve Vaughan and her collection of essays by activists and visionaries show us an alternate economic worldview that existed for most of human history, and could exist again. This brave and path-breaking book will give you hope—and hope is a form of planning.

Even if Bush II had not won however, Patriarchal Capitalism 1 would have continued in its life- threatening course. The conference and now this book are attempts to respond to the need for deep and lasting social change in an epoch of dangerous crisis for all humans, cultures, and the planet.
This goal cannot be achieved without a new perspective, a change in paradigm, which brings with it a radically different vision of the nature of the problems, and of the alternatives. I have been working on the change of paradigms toward a gift economy for many years, both as an independent researcher and as the founder of the feminist Foundation for a Compassionate Society, which had an international scope but was based in Austin, Texas, fromand then functioned in a reduced mode from When it became clear that the work of the foundation could not continue for lack of funds, we decided to hold two conferences as the last two major projects.Chicagos presently neglected sites will be the future locations, under urban block networks, for the poetic and intuitive architectur al, social-interventions that post-modern architects like Pesce and Holl envisioned but lacked the f unds to actualize.
