What People are saying about this

Iris Young
Kittay cogently argues than any conception of justice must explicitly attend to the particular situations of dependent people and those who care for them. Her critical analyses of major theories of justice and her proposals for principles guided by the requirements of dependency work constitute a major breakthrough for political theory.
Sara Ruddick
Love's Labor combines rigorous analysis, informed political argument and passionate personal reflection. This is a magnificent book which might just transform the way we do political philosophy and lead our political lives.
