Product description


'Vandana Shiva is one of the world's most prominent radical scientists ... in Staying Alive she defines the links between ecological crises, colonialism, and the oppression of women. It is a scholarly and polemical plea for the rediscovery of the "feminine principle" in human interaction with the natural world, not as a gender-based quality, rather as an organizing principle, a way of seing the world' - Guardian 'Laced with references to Hindu deities, hard-nosed research into Indian land use and bold attacks on Western science since Bacon, Staying Alive has the go of a big personality behind it' - Observer 'Staying Alive is a book that can change one's way of seeing the world.'- Rumina Sethi, Associate Professor, Department of English, Punjab University, "A uniquely modern Green mixture of Hindu mythology, social disquiet, dry statisticial tables and assaults on Western "male" science." - Spectator
