Staying Alive, re-issue: Women, Ecology and Development (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

In this classic text, bestselling author and activist Vandana Shiva positions the violation of nature with the violation and marginalization of women in the global south. One of the first books to argue that the impact of science, technology and politics, along with the workings of the economy itself, are inherently exploitative, Shiva argues that every area of human activity marginalizes and burdens both women and nature. Her solution for the liberation of nature, women and men - or just for "Staying Alive" - is harmony, sustainability and diversity; and she explores the unique place of women in the environment of India to illustrate and explain her position.



Featuring a brand-new foreword from the author, any reader returning to this insightful text is faced with a searing indictment to the lack of progress in Shiva's areas of expertise. But as an integral part of the environmental canon, this is truly an essential read for anyone interested in development, gender and the global environment.
