Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice Audiobook

Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice

Author: Raj Patel, Rupa Marya Narrator: Raj Patel, Rupa Marya Release Date: August 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. A doctor and an economist explore the hidden links between health and structural injustices, and set out a radical vision for a fairer world Inflamed journeys across the human body - through our digestive, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems - illuminating the hidden relationships between our biological systems and the profound injustices of our political and economic systems. This boldly original book shows how inflammation is connected not just to the food that we eat and the air that we breathe, but is also linked to the traumatic events we experience, the stories we tell, and the arts of diagnosis that physicians practice - and fail to practice - every day. Combining the latest scholarship on globalization and biology with the stories of patients in marginalized communities and the science of Indigenous groups, Inflamed points the way toward a deep medicine that has the potential to heal not only our bodies but the world. © Rupa Marya, Raj Patel 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System Audiobook

Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System

Author: Raj Patel Narrator: Nigel Patterson Release Date: January 2018

It's a perverse fact of modern life: There are more starving people in the world than ever before, while there are also more people who are overweight. To find out how we got to this point and what we can do about it, Raj Patel launched a comprehensive investigation into the global food network. It took him from the colossal supermarkets of California to India's wrecked paddy-fields and Africa's bankrupt coffee farms, while along the way he ate genetically engineered soy beans and dodged flying objects in the protestor-packed streets of South Korea. What he found was shocking, from the false choices given us by supermarkets to a global epidemic of farmer suicides, and real reasons for famine in Asia and Africa. Yet he also found great cause for hope-in international resistance movements working to create a more democratic, sustainable and joyful food system. Going beyond ethical consumerism, Patel explains, from seed to store to plate, the steps to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of both farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.

A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the P Audiobook

A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the P

Author: Jason W. Moore, Raj Patel Narrator: Simon Mattacks Release Date: October 2017

Nature, money, work, care, food, energy, and lives: These are the seven things that have made our world and will shape its future. In making these things cheap, modern commerce has transformed, governed, and devastated Earth. In A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things, Raj Patel and Jason W. Moore present a new approach to analyzing today's planetary emergencies. Bringing the latest ecological research together with histories of colonialism, indigenous struggles, slave revolts, and other rebellions and uprisings, Patel and Moore demonstrate that throughout history, crises have always prompted fresh strategies to make the world cheap and safe for capitalism. At a time of crisis in all seven cheap things, innovative and systemic thinking is urgently required. This book proposes a radical new way of understanding-and reclaiming-the planet in the turbulent twenty-first century.
