En Las guerras del agua, Vandana Shiva utiliza sus notables conocimientos sobre ciencia y sociedad para hacer un análisis histórico del deterioro de los derechos comunitarios sobre el agua. Al estudiar el comercio internacional del agua, la construcción de presas, la minería y la acuicultura, Shiva expone la destrucción de la tierra y la privación del derecho de los pobres del mundo sobre un bien común precioso.

Vandana Shiva revela cuántos de los conflictos más importantes de nuestra era, con frecuencia camuflados como guerras étnicas o religiosas tales como el conflicto entre israelíes y palestinos , en realidad son conflictos por el dominio de recursos naturales vitales pero escasos.

Las guerras del agua elogia el papel espiritual y tradicional del agua en las comunidades a lo largo de la historia y advierte que la privatización del preciado líquido pone en riesgo culturas y estilos de vida de todo el mundo.

A chilling, in-depth examination of the rapidly emerging global crisis.” In These Times

In Las Guerras del Agua (Water Wars), Vandana Shiva reveals how many of the most important conflicts of our time, most often camouflaged as ethnic or religious wars, are in fact conflicts over scarce but vital natural resources. Using her remarkable knowledge of science and society, the globally renowned physicist and ecowarrior analyzes the historical erosion of communal water rights. Whether it’s the international water trade, damming, mining, or aquafarming, Shiva exposes the destruction of the earth and the disenfranchisement of the world's poor and demands nothing less than the full restoration of our natural rights to a precious common good.
