 2.  Manifestos on the Future of Food and Seed

Shiva, Vandana South End Press 2007 Trade Paperback


We live in a world where of the 80,000 edible plants used for food only about 150 are being cultivated, and just 8 are traded globally. A world where we produce food for 12 billion people when there are only 6.3 billion people living, and, still, 800 million suffer from hunger and malnutrition and many more suffer diseases that could be eliminated easily with better food. A world where food is modified to travel long distances rather than to be nutritious and flavorful. Manifestos on the Future of Food and Seed lays out, with practical steps and far reaching concepts, a program to ensure food and agriculture become more socially and ecologically sustainable. It harvests the work and ideas produced by thousands of communities around the world. Emerging from the historic gatherings at Terra Madre, farmers, traders, and activists diagnose and offer prescriptions to reverse perhaps the worst food crisis faced in human history. There is a growing realization that food politics is vital to the health of our bodies, economies, and environment—in other words, a matter of life or death. Featuring contributions by Michael Pollan, Prince Charles, Vandana Shiva, the International Commission on the Future of Food and Agriculture, and more, this pocket-sized and galvanizing collection grapples with these enormous costs, daring to imagine a food system—a world—that is sustainable, healthy, and ultimately, just.

 3.  Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis

Shiva, Vandana South End Press 2008 896087824 Trade paperback


A must-read for anyone who takes the future of the planet seriously, Soil Not Oil dares us to imagine a world where people matter more than profits. With Soil Not Oil, Vandana Shiva brilliantly reveals what connects humanity s most urgent crises food insecurity, peak oil, and climate change and why any attempt to solve one without addressing the others will get us nowhere. Condemning industrial biofuels and agriculture as recipes for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small independent farm instead. With millions hungry and the earth s future at peril, only sustainable, biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease, drought, and flood can both feed and safeguard the world for generations to come. Bold and visionary, Soil Not Oil calls for a return to sound agricultural principles and a world based on self-organization, community, and environmental justice. 
Price: 14.95 USD

 4.  Staying Alive: Women, Ecology & Development

Shiva, Vandana 089608793X / 9780896087934 Paperback

Brand New 

Since at least the days of Francis Bacon, the dominant view in the western world has framed technological and economic development as progress and championed that same narrow vision of progress as inherently benevolent and inevitable. Multinational corporations, the IMF and World Bank, national governments, and humanitarian organizations regularly promote development as the only road to security—but those being developed know otherwise. Staying Alive makes clear why this development paradigm—implemented through enclosure, privatization, corporate piracy, marginalization, and violence—is more accurately characterized as maldevelopment, and how it is inexorably dragging the world down a path of self-destruction. Prescient and fiercely relevant, this pioneering work illuminates how women, more than surviving the crises brought on by development, are creating and safeguarding vital sources of knowledge and vision on not only how to stay alive, but why we should in the first place. 
Price: 16.00 USD

 5.  Stolen Harvest
