Product Overview

Biopirater?a(.), marca un hito en una de las cuestiones m?s importantes del siglo [XXI]. El sugestivo enfoque de Vandana Shiva es un toque de clar?n.deber?a ser le?do y discutido por quienes se preocupan por el futuro de la Tierra.>>
-Jeremy Rifkin, autor de El fin del trabajo
Con su singular estilo, amalgama de an?lisis y de pasi?n, Vandana Shiva se remonta a la colonizaci?n europea de los pueblos ind?genas. como origen del actual proceso de apropiaci?n de unos recursos naturales necesarios para su supervivencia f?sica y cultural.
-Ruth Hubbard, Profesora Em?rita de Biolog?a, Universidad de Harvard

Biopirater?a nos muestra porque s?lo se reconocen los derechos de propiedad intelectual cuando el conocimiento y la innovaci?n producen ganancias, no cuando responden al bien com?n -la creatividad s?lo se pone al servicio de la obtenci?n de beneficios y la acumulaci?n de capital- y c?mo se apropia el Norte de la riqueza de conocimientos del Sur.

"A path-breaking work on one of the most important issues. . . . Shiva's inspiring book is a clarion call [that] should be widely read and discussed by everyone concerned with the fate of the earth."-Jeremy Rifkin

Biopirater?a (Biopiracy) charts the impacts of globalized, corporate agriculture on small farmers, the environment, and the food we eat. Since the original English-language publication, Shiva has successfully fought to overturn Monsanto's seed patents and help create a global food movement. Examining the politics of genetically engineered seeds, patents on life, and aquaculture in an increasingly "go green" economy, this classic book will continue to inform our understanding of what sustainability really means.

Vandana Shiva is the author of many books, including Staying Alive, Earth Democracy, and Soil Not Oil. She is a leader in the International Forum on Globalization (IFG) and the Slow Food movement.
