In India Divided, environmental, human rights, and antiglobalization activist Vandana Shiva chronicles the internal battles of a nation that is both the world's largest democracy and a leading nuclear power. Shiva describes a society where traditional cultures collide with the new economy of globalization, and charts the course of India's war of fundamentalisms in the age In India Divided, environmental, human rights, and antiglobalization activist Vandana Shiva chronicles the internal battles of a nation that is both the world's largest democracy and a leading nuclear power. Shiva describes a society where traditional cultures collide with the new economy of globalization, and charts the course of India's war of fundamentalisms in the age of terror. From the IT centers of Bangalore to the villages of Uttar Pradesh, from the massacre at Gujarat and the popular emergence of Hindutva's narrow communalism to the decades-old battle for Kashmir, India Divided reveals a convergence of globalization and terrorism. Looking to the plights of India's Dalit communities and millions of poor subsistence farmers impoverished or displaced by biotechnology, seed patents, and the spate of mega-dam projects, Shiva argues that these silent killers form a local terror unmatched in devastation. In India Divided Shiva addresses India’s most urgent threats with gravity and hope.

    I know Vandana Shiva's work through Slow Food international, and mostly through her promotion of food sovereignty and especially seed sovereignty (ie anti-GMOs). In India Divided, she's written a more sweeping - and searing - indictment of globalization and capitalism that draws the links between violence, colonization, and the corporatization of our food system.

    I don't know how I didn't know about this brilliant and original thinker before. She looks at questions like the privatization of water from multiple perspectives: historical, economic, religious and personal. I just felt that my understanding of all these issues was immeasurably deepened by the kind of thinking that compares modern agriculture (with its single-clone genetic modifications) to sectarian violence (with its religious and cultural exclusivism). I cannot praise this book too much. I don't know how I didn't know about this brilliant and original thinker before.
