Vandana Shiva zeroes in on possibly the core issue of progress as we know it: in maximizing certain kinds of production, we are systematically "weeding out" other kinds of life. What kind of monoculture do we have when only certain types of plants and people are valued? Shiva conducts a whirlwind tour of what this means for agriculture, biodiversity, the economy, politics, and human values. I found it a very challenging and inspiring piece of work.

Possibly the most important book of the 20th century. Western reductionist science is indicted as unable to comprehend knowledge which is complex, useful, but unwritten, and so blindly destroys and impoverishes, a tool of economic imperialism which leaves only a desert behind its invasions.
