Biopolitics
A Feminist and Ecological Reader on Biotechnology

By Vandana Shiva

Biotechnology is the single most powerful bundle of new technologies currently under development. It is also the most intrusive and determinative technology relating to nature generally and the human body specifically. This Reader brings together some of the most important work from feminists and environmentalists critical of the headlong rush into what is likely to prove a technological minefield. As such it will be essential reading for students, scholars and activists in social studies of science, women's studies, development and environmental studies. While the commercial and scientific publicity around biotechnology has stressed the potential gains, scientists, thinkers and activists have been warning of the grave risks and difficult ethical issues at stake. This reader assembles critiques of biotechnology. The contributors explore the hidden implications and likely consequences of defining biotechnology as the latest wonder cure for the environment and development crisis.
