Vandana Shiva was one of India's leading physicists and is now a leading environmental campaigner, the winner of the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize and the author of several books, includingSoil not Oil (2008), Earth Democracy (2005) and Stolen Harvest (2001).

In this compelling and rigorously documented exposition, Vandana Shiva demolishes the myths propagated by corporate globalization in its pursuit of profit and power, and reveals 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, agribusiness 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 utterly unsustainable.

Making Peace with the Earth boldly makes the claim that a paradigm shift to earth-centered politics and economics is our only chance of survival, envisioning how collective resistance to corporate exploitation can open the way to a new environmentalism.
