Ecofeminism by Maria Mies( Book )

50 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking work remains as relevant today as when it was when first published. Two of Zed's best-known authors argue that ecological destruction and industrial catastrophes constitute a direct threat to everyday life, the maintenance of which has been made the particular responsibility of women. In both industrialized societies and the developing countries, the new wars the world is experiencing, violent ethnic chauvinisms and the malfunctioning of the economy also pose urgent questions for ecofeminists. Is there a relationship between patriarchal oppression and the destruction of nature in the name of profit and progress? How can women counter the violence inherent in these processes? Should they look to a link between the women's movement and other social movements? Maria Mies and Vandana Shiva offer a thought-provoking analysis of these and many other issues from a unique North-South perspective. They critique prevailing economic theories, conventional concepts of women's emancipation, the myth of 'catching up' development, the philosophical foundations of modern science and technology, and the omission of ethics when discussing so many questions, including advances in reproductive technology and biotechnology. In constructing their own ecofeminist epistemology and methodology, these two internationally respected feminist environmental activists look to the potential of movements advocating consumer liberation and subsistence production, sustainability and regeneration, and they argue for an acceptance of limits and reciprocity and a rejection of exploitation, the endless commoditization of needs, and violence

The violence of the green revolution : Third World agriculture, ecology, and politics by Vandana Shiva( )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member 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

Growing stories from India : religion and the fate of agriculture by A. Whitney Sanford( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The costs of industrial agriculture are astonishing in terms of damage to the environment, human health, animal suffering, and social equity, and the situation demands that we expand our ecological imagination to meet this crisis. In response to growing dissatisfaction with the existing food system, farmers and consumers are creating alternate models of production and consumption that are both sustainable and equitable. In Growing Stories from India: Religion and the Fate of Agriculture, author A. Whitney Sanford uses the story of the deity Balaram and the Yamuna River as a foundation for discussing the global food crisis and illustrating the Hindu origins of agrarian thought. By employing narrative as a means of assessing modern agriculture, Sanford encourages us to reconsider our relationship with the earth. Merely creating new stories is not enough--she asserts that each story must lead to changed practices. Growing Stories from India demonstrates that conventional agribusiness is only one of many options and engages the work of modern agrarian luminaries to explore how alternative agricultural methods can be implemented"--Provided by publisher

Protect or plunder? : understanding intellectual property rights by Vandana Shiva( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intellectual property rights, TRIPS, patents - they sound technical, even boring. Yet what kinds of ideas, technologies, identification of genes, even manipulations of life forms can be owned and exploited for profit by giant corporations is a vital issue for our times. Vandana Shiva shows how the Western-inspired and unprecedented widening of the concept of intellectual property does not in fact stimulate human creativity and the generation of knowledge. Instead, it is being exploited by transnational corporations to increase their profits at the expense of the health of ordinary people especially the poor, and the age-old knowledge of the world's farmers. Intellectual protection is being transformed into corporate plunder. Little wonder popular resistance is rising around the world to the World Trade Organization, that polices this new intellectual world order, the pharmaceutical, biotech and other corporations which dominate it, and the new technologies they are foisting upon us
Grabbing back : essays against the global land grab by Alexander Reid Ross( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Climate change ravages the earth, while wealthy elites try to grab as much of the world's diminishing resources as possible. As Vandana Shiva writes, land is life. But land, and the struggle to possess it, is also power-- colonial and corporate power, to be sure, but also the power of the dispossessed to rise up and call for an end to the global land grab. Grabbing Back maps this struggle, bringing together analysis that uncover the politics of cultivation and control. In this unprecedented collection, on-the-ground activists join forces with critically acclaimed scholars to documents the commodification and consumption of space, from foreclosed homes to annihilated rainforests, from ecotourism in Sri Lanka to the tar sands of Montana, and to outline the strategies and tactics that might halt the destruction"--Page 4 of cover
Monocultures of the mind : perspectives on biodiversity and biotechnology by Vandana Shiva( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Underlying her arguments is the view that the North's particular approach to scientific understanding has led to a system of monoculture in agriculture -- a model that is now being foisted on the South, displacing its societies ecologically sounder, indigenous and age-old experimences of truly sustainable food cultivation, forest management and animal husbandry. This rapidly accelerating process of technology and system transfer is impoverishing huge numbers of people, disrupting the social systems that provide them with security and dignity, and will ultimately result in a sterile planet in both North and South. In a policy intervention of potentially great significance, she calls instead for a halt, at international as well as local level, to the aid and market incentives to both large-scale destruction of habitats where biodiversity thrives and the introduction of centralised, homogeneous systems of cultivation. Book jacket."--Jacket
