Product Details


“Vandana Shiva is one of the world’s most prominent radical scientists. In Staying Alive she defines the links between ecological crises, colonialism, and the oppression of women. It is a scholarly and polemical plea for the rediscovery of the ‘feminine principle’ in human interaction with the natural world, not as a gender-based quality, rather an organizing principle, a way of seeing the world.”
The Guardian
“Extraordinary in the ease of its global and historical scopes and the clarity of its arguments.”
Women’s Review of Books

“Laced with references to Hindu deities, hard-nosed research into Indian land use and bold attacks on Western science … Staying Alive … has the ‘go’ of a big personality behind it.”
The Observer
“Shiva … has devoted her life to fighting for the rights of the ordinary people of India.… Her fierce intellect and her disarmingly friendly, accessible manner have made her a valuable advocate for people all over the developing world.”
Ms. magazine
“A leading thinker who has eloquently blended her views on the environment, agriculture, spirituality, and women’s rights into a powerful philosophy.”
Utne Reader
“Shiva is burst of creative energy, an intellectual power.”
The Progressive
