Auteur: Shiva, Vandana
Titel: Water Wars
Sub titel: Privatization, Pollution and Profit
Another book on the ever popular subject of water - can't do without it which means there's money to be made. Using the international water trade and industrial activities such as damming, mining, and aquafarming as her lens, Shiva exposes the disenfranchisement of the world's poor as they are stripped of rights to a precious common good. Shiva shines a light on activists who are fighting corporate maneuvers to convert this life-sustaining resource into more gold for the elites - she calls for a movement to preserve water access for all.
