Earth democracy : justice, sustainability, and peace by Vandana Shiva ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 609 libraries worldwide
"A leading voice in struggles for global justice, Vandana Shiva is a world renowned environmental activist and physicist. With Earth Democracy, her most extensive treatment of the struggles she helped bring to international attention-genetic food engineering, cultural theft, and natural resource privatization-Shiva uncovers their link to the rising tide of fundamentalisms, violence against women, and planetary death. Starting in the 16th century with the initial enclosure of the British commons, Shiva reveals how the commons continue to shrink as more natural resources are patented and privatized. As our ecological sustainability and cultural diversity erode, so too is human life rendered disposable. Through the forces of neoliberal globalization, economic and social exclusion ignite violence across lines of difference, threatening the lives of millions. Yet these brutal extinctions are not the only trend shaping human history. Struggles on the streets of Seattle and Cancún and in homes and farms across the world, have yielded a set of principles based on inclusion, nonviolence, reclaiming the commons, and freely sharing the earth's resources. These ideals, which Shiva calls Earth Democracy, serve as an urgent call to peace and as the basis for a just and sustainable future." -- Back cover.
The violence of the green revolution : Third World agriculture, ecology, and politics by Vandana Shiva ( Book )
17 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 496 libraries worldwide
The Green Revolution is often touted as being one of independent India's most outstanding achievements. But behind the widely broadcast images of full granaries and an explorable gain surplus lies a grim tale of environmental and social carnage. In this book, already a classic, Vandana shiva, examines the impact of the Green Revolution in the state of Punjab. She documents the destruction of genetic diversity and soil fertility that resulted from the Green Revolution in the State, and also shows how the acute social and political conflicts that eventually emerged tore Punjab apart and continue to simmer. As India gets hopelessly mired in the brave new world of modern agriculture with its interactable problems, this book constitutes a warning about the horrors that lie ahead. It should spur the thoughtful and the concerned towards greater efforts in developing a workable, humane alternative.

"Condemning industrial biofuels and agriculture as recipes for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small independent farm instead. With millions hungry and the earth's future at peril. only sustainable, biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease, drought, and flood can both feed and safeguard the world for generations to come. Bold and visionary, Soil Not Oil calls for a return to sound agricultural principles - and a world based on self-organization, community, and environmental justice."--BOOK JACKET.

India divided : diversity and democracy under attack by Vandana Shiva ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 227 libraries worldwide
"In India Divided environmental, human rights, and antiglobalization activist Vandana Shiva chronicles the internal battles of a nation that is both the world's largest democracy and a leading nuclear power. Shiva describes a society where traditional cultures collide with the new economy of globalization, and charts the course of India's war of fundamentalisms in the age of terror. From the IT centers of Bangalore to the villages of Uttar Pradesh, from the massacre at Gujarat and the popular emergence of Hindutva's narrow communalism to the decades-old battle for Kashmir. India Divided reveals a convergence of globalization and terrorism. Looking to the plights of India's Dalit communities and millions of poor subsistence farmers impoverished or displaced by biotechnology, seed patents, and the spate of mega-dam projects, Shiva argues that these silent killers form a local terror unmatched in devastation. In India Divided Shiva addresses India's most urgent threats with gravity and hope."--Jacket.
