In i Who Really Feeds the World i author and activist Vandana Shiva debunks the notion that our current food crisis is inevitable and must be addressed through industrial agriculture and genetic modification In fact Shiva argues those forces are the ones responsible for the hunger problem in the first place As an alternative Shiva emphasizes agroecology the knowledge and science of the complex interactions that produce our food She succinctly and eloquently lays out the networks of people and processes that feed the world exploring issues of diversity the needs of small famers the importance of seed saving the movement toward localization and the role of women in producing the world s food Refuting widely held beliefs about the global food crisis Shiva delivers a powerful manifesto calling for agricultural justice and sustainability drawing upon her thirty years of research and accomplishments in the field, In Stolen Harvest Vandana Shiva describes how industrial agriculture steals food from nature and poor people She urges us to reclaim our right to protect the earth and her diverse species Food democracy she says is the new agenda for ecological sustainability and social justice, With i Soil Not Oil i Vandana Shiva connects the dots between industrial agriculture and climate change Shiva shows that a world beyond dependence on fossil fuels and globalization is both possible and necessary br br Condemning industrial agriculture as a recipe for ecological and economic disaster Shiva s champion is the small independent farm their greater productivity their greater potential for social justice as they put more resources into the hands of the poor and the biodiversity that is inherent to the traditional farming practiced in small scale agriculture What we need most in a time of changing climates and millions hungry she argues is sustainable biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease drought and flood In her trademark style she draws solutions to our world s most pressing problems on the head of a pin The solution to climate change she observes and the solution to poverty are the same br br Using Shiva s organization Navdanya praised by Barbara Kingsolver as a small green Eden framed against the startling blue backdrop of the Himalayas as a model i Soil Not Oil i lays out principles for feeding the planet that are socially just and environmentally sound Shiva then expands her analysis to broader issues of globalization and climate change arguing that a healthy environment and a just world go hand in hand Unwavering and truly visionary i Soil Not Oil i proposes a solution based on self organization sustainability and community rather than corporate power and profits br br A world renowned environmental leader and thinker b Vandana Shiva b is the author of many books including i Earth Democracy i i Water Wars i and i Staying Alive i She is the editor of i Manifestos on the Future of Food and Seed i, Vandana Shiva is one of the world s most prominent radical scientists In Staying Alive she defines the links between ecological crises colonialism and the oppression of women It is a scholarly and polemical plea for the rediscovery of the feminine principle in human interaction with the natural world not as a gender based quality rather an organizing principle a way of seeing the world the Guardian br br In this pioneering work Vandana Shiva looks at the history of development and progress stripping away the neutral language of science to reveal third world development policy as the global twin of the industrial revolution br br As Shiva makes clear the way this development paradigm is being implemented through violence against nature and women threatens survival itself She focuses on how rural Indian women experience and perceive the causes and effects of ecological destruction and how they conceive of and initiate processes to stop the destruction and begin regeneration As the world continues to follow destructive paths of development Shiva s Staying Alive is a fiercely relevant book that positions women not solely as survivors of the crisis but as the source of crucial insights and visions to guide our struggle br br Vandana Shiva is the author of many books including Staying Alive Earth Democracy and Soil Not Oil She is a leader in the International Forum on Globalization IFG and the Slow Food movement
