The ocean today is a central protagonist in the ongoing battle for life on earth. It is the site of a violent clash between the right to live and the right to profit, as corporate interests enclose the ocean's vast common of living riches through tourism and industrial fishing'distorting landscapes, depleting fish stocks, and destroying barriers to protection against climate disaster. Our Mother Ocean tells the story of the Fisherman's Movement from its beginnings in Southern India to its central role in the struggle against neoliberal globalization. Since the 1970s, the Fisherman's Movement has been one of the ocean's closest and most impassioned protectors, raising key questions concerning the relationship between work and the safeguarding of common resources, the provision of community needs and environmental limits of the devastating industrialization of our oceans. While a remarkable political awareness has spread over the last 40 years around questions of food, agriculture and land, the issues of the sea have remained concealed, despite the protracted struggles between fish workers and those who oversee the sector and the exploitation of the ocean's resources. In this crucial intervention, Mariarosa Dalla Costa and Monica Chilese offer the ocean to the land-locked history of food sovereignty movements led primarily workers in the global South against dispossession. Dalla Costa and Chilese draw attention to the polyvalent functions of the ocean as a source of food, medicine, raw materials, biodiversity and culture'and as a site of human labour and livelihood threatened by vast enclosures through industrial fishing and tourism. This book is an urgent reminder that the ocean is today the site of a heroic struggle for the preservation of life on earth. It points crucially to impassioned sectors of the movement of movements that endure in the global South, and details the stakes of the struggles and its outcomes on land and at sea as central for the future of life on earth.

"Mother Ocean Daughter Sea Strength Unchanging Strengthen Me" The Shari'a are an ancient race. They are un-warlike and they are ruled by their shamanic witches. The Allemanii are more recently arrived in their locale and are both awed and made fearful by the magical powers of the witches. After generations of peaceful coexistence, a cataclysm occurred out of nowhere and the Allemanii turned on their neighbors and hosts, slaughtered most of them and scattered the survivors. Suddenly, to be a Shari'a is proscribed and to be caught practicing their magic is to be hunted to the death. In MOTHER OCEAN, DAUGHTER SEA, Brierly, thinking herself to be the last of her long-lost kind, practices the forbidden ancient healing art at constant risk of her life. Execution is the penalty if she is caught but her need to help those who are themselves in need is stronger than any fear for her own safety. "If I am the last, I will be a flame to the end." But her attempt to save the wife of a nobleman sworn to wipe out her kind plunges her into a conspiracy of deceit and a hidden power struggle more deadly than anything she has ever known. Her fight for survival may lead her to a love for the ages and, perhaps, to discover the surviving remnants of her people--if she lives.

Many centuries ago the search for midwives and healers unleashed raids on villages and rural communities. Soldiers trained to carry out the raids destroyed homes, killed or maimed inhabitants and if a midwife or healer was found, that woman was captured to be burned at the stake or drowned. Fourteen year- old Yunitra speaks out to her mother about the unjust law that allows these merciless actions. To silence her protestations, she is banished by her parents to a lodge to work for three midwives. Yunitra escapes after a raid, sets off on a lone journey while yearning for companionship and an understanding of betrayal; only to discover her resilience and her self. Uwomo, recruited at age fourteen, together with his warhorse, Maximus, is trained to be a soldier and soon becomes a feared and revered warrior that leads many raids until one fateful day when his life as a fighting man ends with his desertion. His ensuing odyssey takes him through a battle of a different sort: that of finding his way out of the effects that inflicting pain and death had on his belief in honour and self-respect. Yunitra, Maximus and Uwomo , each on their own solitary search, eventually meet, barely miss capture by Count Arrogar and his search party. It is Mother Nature that comes to the rescue of the three fugitives - Yunitra, Uwomo and Maximus - by delivering them into a world of inclusion, communal kindness and compassion.

"A love of green may be a human universal. Deepening the palette of green scholarship, Bron Taylor proves remarkably to be both an encyclopedist and a visionary."--Jonathan Benthall, author of Returning to Religion: Why a Secular Age is Haunted by Faith "This important book provides insight into how a profound sense of relation to nature offers many in the modern world a vehicle for attaining a spiritual wholeness akin to what has been historically associated with established religion. In this sense, Dark Green Religion offers both understanding and hope for a world struggling for meaning and purpose beyond the isolation of the material here and now."--Stephen Kellert, Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies "In this thought-provoking volume, Bron Taylor explores the seemingly boundless efforts by human beings to understand the nature of life and our place in the universe. Examining in depth the ways in which influential philosophers and naturalists have viewed this relationship, Taylor contributes to the further development of thought in this critically important area, where our depth of understanding will play a critical role in our survival."--Peter H. Raven, President, Missouri Botanical Garden "Carefully researched, strongly argued, originally conceived, and very well executed, this book is a vital contribution on a subject of immense religious, political, and environmental importance. It's also a great read."--Roger S. Gottlieb, author of A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and our Planet's Future "A fascinating analysis of our emotional and spiritual relationship to nature. Whether you call it dark green religion or something else, Bron Taylor takes us through our spiritual relationship with our planet, its ecosystems and evolution, in an enlightened and completely undogmatic manner."--Dr. Claude Martin, Former Director General, World Wildlife Fund "An excellent collection of guideposts for perplexed students and scholars about the relationships of nature religions, spirituality, animism, pantheism, deep ecology, Gaia, and land ethics--and for the environmentalist seeking to make the world a better place through green religion as a social force."--Fikret Berkes, author of Sacred Ecology: Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Resource Management "Dark Green Religion shows conclusively how nature has inspired a growing religious movement on the planet, contesting the long reign of many older faiths. Taylor expertly guides us through an astonishing array of thinkers, past and present, who have embraced, in part or whole, the new religion. I was thoroughly convinced that this movement has indeed become a major force on Earth, with great potential consequences for our environmental ethics."--Donald Worster, University of Kansas "In this exceptionally interesting and informative book, Bron Taylor has harvested the fruits of years of pioneering research in what amounts to a new field in religious studies: the study of how religious/spiritual themes show up in the work of people concerned about nature in many diverse ways. Taylor persuasively argues that appreciation of nature's sacred or spiritual dimension both informs and motivates the work of individuals ranging from radical environmentalists and surfers, to eco-tourism leaders and museum curators. I highly recommend this book for everyone interested learning more about the surprising extent to which religious/spiritual influences many of those who work to protect, to exhibit, or to represent the natural world."--Michael E. Zimmerman, Director, Center for Humanities and the Arts, University of Colorado at Boulder

This is a book about the potential of dreams. It shows the faith, passion, and actions that can make them come true. It is about hope for all of us. A captain's stories weaving together philosophies learned from a life connected to the ocean and island cultures around the world. The stories about running away to follow a dream introduce ideas about passion, courage, faith and the path to making your dreams come true. Fear, and how it affects our society and personal lives, springs from the terrifying storm stories. The depictions of people and tropical places show different ways of living, priorities closer to the heart, questioning common First World lifestyles. The trade-offs, struggles and hard times reveal tenacity and grit, often required in the not-so-normal life spent at sea. The view from the deck of a wooden schooner verifies that how we perceive things has a profound and powerful effect. As crew aboard the good ship Cassiopeia you will learn lessons from being on a sinking ship in the Pacific and on islands where they still use bows and arrows. You will travel the West Indies and through the Panama Canal to the exotic islands of the South Pacific. Tales about the amazing power of many glorious moments in the hands of Mother Ocean with no land for thousands of miles, blessed evenings filled with music and song and overwhelming joy, encounters with the machines of war, and the obvious cries of our dying oceans, all lead to conversations about the nature of humanity. The deck of Cassiopeia has been an international think tank for ideas on why life unfolds in a certain way and what the major influences on the path of humanity could be. There have been crew of all nationalities, financial levels and walks of life. It is very apparent, especially when seen from the deck of an old wooden schooner, that it is time for a change in how we humans interact with our planet and each other. From out here it is easy to see the changes in our oceans, the environment, and the cultural clash between the rich and the poor. This book aspires to be more than just an assortment of sailing stories; it is also a bold assertion that it is not too late for us to change the direction in which humankind is headed. It is a reminder of the basic ways of thinking and acting that will empower our dreams to come true. The big shared dreams, peace, harmony, stopping environmental destruction and ending the waste of resources are worthy dreams. If we dare to take them on in our personal lives then there is hope for us all. This is a success book for your personal life and for the human experience on this planet. Follow your dreams; take action and change your life to have what you want; what your heart and your soul and your passions want. If each of us does something every day in our life to move towards the peace and harmony we all desire, then we will change the world, FROM THE BOTTOM UP!
