Making Peace with the Earth
In her new book, Making Peace with the Earth, Sydney Peace Prize recipient Vandana Shiva explores the basis of human life on our planet. She finds that a series of wars have been declared against the Earth: wars about land, water, climate, forests and biodiversity.
In a searing critique of corporate globalisation, she examines the root causes of these wars against the backdrop of the current crisis in food supply. She imagines a world that could be sustainable; a world in which food security, justice and peace are all aligned.
By drawing out the connections between ‘growth’ and free markets, she argues for a future in which human rights and earth rights become central to the creation of a different kind of wealth, one imbued with democracy and justice.
A radical scientist and ecofeminist, and the author of several books published to international acclaim, in Making Peace with the Earth Vandana Shiva offers solutions that hold the promise of freedom and peace.
