'One of the world's most prominent radical scientists'Guardian

Vandana Shiva demolishes the myths propagated by corporate globalisation in its pursuit of profit and power, revealing the devastating environmental impact of corporate capitalism.

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. She concludes that exploitation of this order is incurring an ecological and economic debt that is unsustainable.

Making Peace with the Earth outlines how a paradigm shift to earth-centred politics and economics is our only chance of survival and how collective resistance to corporate exploitation can open the way to a new environmentalism.

Vandana Shiva was one of India's leading physicists and is now a world-renowned environmental thinker and activist. She is the recipient of over 20 international awards, and the winner of the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize. A tireless crusader for farmers’, peasants’ and women’s rights, she is the author of many books.
