In this book Vandana Shiva, who has established herself as a leading independent thinker and voice of the South, brings together her thinking on the protection of biotechnology, and the consequences for agriculture of the global pre-eminence of Western-style scientific knowledge. She examines the current threats to the planet's biodiversity and the environmental and human consequences of its erosion and replacement by monocultural production. Monocultures Of The Mind Perspectives On Biodiversity She calls for a halt to the aid and market incentives to both large-scale destruction of habitats where biodiversity thrives and the introduction of centralised, homogeneous systems of cultivation.
