PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Violence of the Green Revolution: Third World Agriculture, Ecology and Politics As the agricultural systems of many countries are poised as a result of the recent advances in biotechnology for what may soon come to be called the Second Green Revolution this book is particularly appropriate Vandana Shiva examined the impact of the first Green Revolution on the breadbasket of India In a cogent empirical argument she shows how the quick fix promise of large gains in output pushed aside serious pursuit of an alternative agricultural strategy grounded in respect for the environmental wisdom of peasant systems and building an egalitarian needs prientated agriculture consistent with the village based endogenous political traditions of Gandhism Dr Shiva documents the destruction of genetic diversity and soil fertility that resulted and in highly original fashion shows how the Green Revolution also contributed to the acute social and political conflicts now tearing the Punjab apart .

Set in the context of a sophisticated critique of the privileged epistemological position achieved by modern science whereby it both aspires to provide technological solutions for social and political problems while at the same time disclaiming responsibility for the new problems which it creates in its wake the author looks to the future in an analysis of a new project to apply the latest Gene Revolution technology to India and warns of the further environmental and social damage which will ensue
