Review by Publisher Summary 1

Examines the devastating impact of corporate globalization and overconsumption on the environment, and suggests a new earth-centered approach for addressing environmental issues.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Shows how millions in the West are running up huge ecological debts to the third world through over-consumption.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

In this compelling and rigorously documented exposition, Vandana Shiva demolishes the myths propagated by corporate globalisation in its pursuit of profit and power and shows its devastating environmental impact.Shiva argues that consumerism lubricates the war against the earth and that corporate control violates all ethical and ecological limits. She takes the reader on a journey through the world's devastated eco-landscape, one of genetic engineering, industrial development and land-grabs in Africa, Asia and South America. She concludes that exploitation of this order is incurring an ecological and economic debt that is unsustainable.Making Peace with the Earth outlines how a paradigm shift to earth-centred politics and economics is our only chance of survival and how collective resistance to corporate exploitation can open the way to a new environmentalism.
