9780813153292: The Vandana Shiva Reader (Culture Of The Land)

"Her great virtue as an advocate is that she is not a reductionist. Her awareness of the complex connections among economy and nature and culture preserves her from oversimplification. So does her understanding of the importance of diversity."―Wendell Berry, from the foreword

Motivated by agricultural devastation in her home country of India, Vandana Shiva became one of the world's most influential and highly acclaimed environmental and antiglobalization activists. Her groundbreaking research has exposed the destructive effects of monocultures and commercial agriculture and revealed the links between ecology, gender, and poverty.

In The Vandana Shiva Reader, Shiva assembles her most influential writings, combining trenchant critiques of the corporate monopolization of agriculture with a powerful defense of biodiversity and food democracy. Containing up-to-date data and a foreword by Wendell Berry, this essential collection demonstrates the full range of Shiva's research and activism, from her condemnation of commercial seed technology, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and the international agriculture industry's dependence on fossil fuels, to her tireless documentation of the extensive human costs of ecological deterioration.

This important volume illuminates Shiva's profound understanding of both the perils and potential of our interconnected world and calls on citizens of all nations to renew their commitment to love and care for soil, seeds, and people.

About the Author :

Vandana Shiva is the director of Navdanya in India. A physicist, philosopher, and feminist, she is the author of more than twenty books and the recipient of more than twenty international awards.

Review :

"The Vandana Shiva Reader provides an important East-West agrarian bridge connecting two of the world's great democracies and their struggles with industrial agriculture as it drives out sustainable alternatives, destroying both ecosystems and human communities along the way. To read Dr. Shiva's work is to feel the power of a fertile theoretical mind engaged in fierce and inspirational acts of resistance. Hers is a unique voice."―Bill Vitek, coeditor of The Virtues of Ignorance: Complexity, Sustainability, and the Limits of Knowledge

"Vandana Shiva stands alone as an powerful critic of industrial agriculture. The clarity of her voice and the commitment of her life work are evident in this reader. There are few who match her tireless dedication to seeds and their life generating capacities. As this book shows, she is blazing a path toward healthy soil and food for future generations."―Mary Evelyn Tucker, Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University

"Her great virtue as an advocate is that she is not a reductionist. Her awareness of the complex connections among the economy and nature and culture preserves her from oversimplification. So does her understanding of the importance of diversity."―Wendell Berry, from the foreword

"Vandana Shiva has had an enormous impact on how we view the world around us; it is a hugely valuable service to have her key writings in one place for easy reference. Because we should refer to them often!"―Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy
