Reviews

"Most welcome.... Vandana Shiva draws renewed attention to the impact on Indian agriculture of the Green Revolution and its transformation into the biotechnological revolution.... Raises important questions for contemporary analyses of ecological distress and economic restructuring." -- Science and Society


"Vandana Shiva is one of the world's most prominent radical scientists." -- Guardian


"So many crucial questions are raised in this book.... [It presents] an important thesis about the realignment of social groups that deserves careful analysis" -- Agricultural History


"Shiva treats the Green Revolution as an example of scientific hubris, an attempt to use science to overcome the natural limitations of agriculture, primarily for a political purpose." -- Journal of Asian Studies
