Praise For Biopirateria: El Saqueo de la Naturaleza y del Conocimiento = Biopiracy

"More than a searing indictment of the growing corporatizing of agriculture, Shiva's book is a call to arms. She encourages readers to join the growing food fight and...profiles a number of citizen groups who are doing just that, successfully." --LA Times
"An important contribution to ongoing debates about...timely and contentious issues. The book will be of interest to a diverse audience, including those concerned with development and food security issues, the trade-environment conflict, and North-South relations in a globalizing era." --Progress in Development Studies
