The violence of the green revolution : Third World agriculture, ecology, and politics by Vandana Shiva ( Book )
21 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 536 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 ( )
2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 520 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

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With Soil Not Oil, Vandana Shiva reveals what connects humanity's most urgent crises - food insecurity, peak oil, and climate change and why any attempt to solve one without addressing the others will get us nowhere." "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
Protect or plunder? : understanding intellectual property rights by Vandana Shiva ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 421 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
