Making Peace With The Earth by Vandana Shiva
In this compelling and rigorously documented exposition, Vandana Shiva demolishes the myths propagated by corporate globalisation in its pursuit of profit and power and shows its devastating environmental impact. Shiva argues that consumerism lubricates the war against the earth and that corporate control violates all ethical and ecological limits. She takes the reader on a journey through the world's devastated eco-landscape, one of genetic engineering, industrial development and land-grabs in Africa, Asia and South America.
Vandana Shiva is an Indian scholar, environmental activist and alter-globalization author. Shiva, currently based in Delhi, has authored more than twenty books and has won multiple awards for her acclaimed work and academic achievements.
