Ecofeminism's analysis of global politics, ecology and the status of women has an unmistakable ring of truth. This is the basic text for women's study of ecofeminism, by two leading activist-scholars, one from the 'north', German professor emeritus Maria Mies, the other from the 'south', Indian physicist Vandana Shiva. Together they present a fundamental feminist critique of modern industrial development, its effects on women and children, on nature and all aspects of the environment, with many examples from real life around the world. What today are called ecology movements in the South are actually movements for rootedness, movements to resist uprooting before it begins. The authors explore the crisis in science "a Western, male-oriented and patriarchal projection which necessarily entailed the subjugation of both nature and women" ; the inequality in current development; environmental degradation and its effects; biotechnology and reproductive technologies; globalization and its effects on women's lives; and finally other models for a new vision of development, based on the Subsistence Perspective.
