India Divided: Diversity and Democracy Under Attack

India Divided: Diversity and Democracy Under Attack Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In India Divided, environmental, human rights, and antiglobalization activist Vandana Shiva chronicles the internal battles of a nation that is both the world's largest democracy and a leading nuclear power. Shiva describes a society where traditional cultures collide with the new economy of globalization, and charts the course of India's war of fundamentalisms in the age of terror. From the IT centers of Bangalore to the villages of Uttar Pradesh, from the massacre at Gujarat and the popular emergence of Hindutva's narrow communalism to the decades-old battle for Kashmir, India Divided reveals a convergence of globalization and terrorism. Looking to the plights of India's Dalit communities and millions of poor subsistence farmers impoverished or displaced by biotechnology, seed patents, and the spate of mega-dam projects, Shiva argues that these silent killers form a local terror unmatched in devastation. In India Divided Shiva addresses Indias most urgent threats with gravity and hope.

Synopsis:

- By "one of the world's most prominent radical scientists"(Ms.)

Synopsis:

A new look at the chronic socio-economic and new political crises threatening India.

Synopsis:

The author looks into the increasingly desperate situation in India, asking how the land of Buddha and Gandhi became so dangerous.

Synopsis:

Physicist-turned-environmental, human rights, and antiglobalization activist Dr. Vandana Shiva sees India in desperate crisis, facing potential nuclear conflict with Pakistan, the rise of fundamentalism within its own borders, and the very real threat of mass famine and economic enslavement of its citizens to the forces of globalization. In India on Fire, Shiva offers a critical analysis of the effects of globalization. This slim book, which brings together historical, philosophical, and scientific thought, is a succinct and worthy primer for anyone who wishes to understand the crises in India and Pakistan today.

Vandana Shiva is the author of many books, including Water Wars, and won the 1993 Right Livelihood Award, also known as the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize.
