Description
Back of The Book

‘Eco-feminism has always been the feminism of ordinary women I have never seen eco-feminism as an issue of essentialism in biology. I do not say that women are genetically wired to be closer to nature but we are culturally wired because the patriarchal system pushed us out. It also told women that men had all the rights and the control. The men operated the military and pocketed all the profits. But who looked after life? The women. Where does life come from? From biodiversity, from the forest. Therefore, women became experts of life because they were entrusted with the responsibility of becoming sustainers.

 

About The Book

From eco- feminism and biodiversity to the Chipko Movement, swadeshi and village governance, corruption and poverty in India, and the future of Indian farmers among others, in this book Vandana Shiva unravels her heart to address many critical issues India is negotiating with.

The dialogue moves effortlessly as Vandana talks about her early life, influence of her parents and teachers, her affinity with the Himalayas, love for quantum physics, role of technology and science, ‘earth democracy’, ‘seed globalization,, relevance of Gandhian philosophy in the contemporary world, and ‘eco-imperialism, candid, lively, and personal, Talking Environment, the sixth book in the series of Ramin Jahanbegloo,s interviews of prominent intellectuals is a journey into the life and work of one of the finest thinkers of our time.

 

About The Author

Vandana Shiva, Philosopher, environmental activist, and author, is well-known for conceptualizing ‘eco-feminism,. In 1982, she initiated Navdanya, a programme of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE), a participatory research initiative, to provide direction and support to environmental activism. Recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, she was also decorated with the Global 500 Award of the UNEP, and the Earth Day International Award of the UN.

Ramin Jahanbegloo, well-known Iranian-Canadian philosopher, is an Associate Professor and York-Noor Chair in Islamic Studies at York University.

Born in Tehran, Iran in 1956, Ramin Jahanbegloo, an Iranian-Canadian philosopher, has worked extensively to foster constructive dialogue between divergent cultures. In his efforts to promote argumentative tradition, he has interacted with scholars and intellectuals from all over the world: the Dalai Lama, Noam Chomsky, Ashis Nandy, and George Steiner among others. In recent years, he invited Richard Rorty, Timothy Garton Ash, Antonio Negri, and Michael Ignatieff, and many intellectuals to Iran.

In late April 2006, on his way to an international conference in Brussels, Ramin was arrested by the Iranian authorities. On 19 May, more than 400 prominent intellectuals, including Nobel laureates, scholars, and human rights activists, in an open letter demanded his immediate release. Among the undersigned were: Noam Chomsky, J.M. Coetzee, Shirin Ebadi, Umberto Eco, Jurgen Habermas, Timothy Garton Ash, Leszek Kolakowski, Antonio Negri, Richard Rorty, Krzysztof Zanussi, and Howard Zinn. On 30 August he was released from prison after four months of confinement.

In 2006 and 2007 Ramin was Rajni Kothari Professor of Democracy at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) in New Delhi, India. He won the peace prize from the United Nations Association in Spain for his extensive academic works in promoting dialogue between cultures and his advocacy for non-violence. He is also on the advisory board of PEN Canada.

A film buff, Ramin is a bibliophile. He is presently an Associate Professor and York-Noor Chair in Islamic Studies at York University. Talking Environment is his sixth book with OUP.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
