0521119537 Very good, hardcover with no dust jacket, as issued. Association Copy: Signed to Elspeth Pope by someone named Jamie, with the following inscription: "September '09 - For Elspeth, In friendship and with thanks for the sheltering peace of Hypatia-in-the-Woods where this book was completed." In 1991, Elspeth Pope, recently retired as a professor in library and information science, met Dr. Melissa Hardie, director of the Hypatia Trust in Cornwall, England. Melissa and her husband, Dr. Philip Budden, had created the Hypatia Trust, a library of published and personal documentation of the achievements of hundreds of creative women. Their collection of more than 15,000 items was housed in a fine building, in the garden next to their home. Their work and Hypatia's story planted the seed that grew into the dream that became the reality of Hypatia-in-the-Woods, a Retreat Center for Women in the Arts, Academe & Business located in Shelton, Washington. We have more of Dr. Pope's library available upon request. Support Last Word Books & Press and independent booksellers.

Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

At the intersection of indigenous studies, science studies, and legal studies lies a tense web of political issues of vital concern for the survival of indigenous nations. Numerous historians of science have documented the vital role of late-eighteenth- and nineteenth-century science as a part of statecraft, a means of extending empire. This book follows imperialism into the present, demonstrating how pursuit of knowledge of the natural world impacts, and is impacted by, indigenous peoples rather than nation-states. In extractive biocolonialism, the valued genetic resources, and associated agricultural and medicinal knowledge, of indigenous peoples are sought, legally converted into private intellectual property, transformed into commodities, and then placed for sale in genetic marketplaces. Science, Colonialism, and Indigenous Peoples critically examines these developments, demonstrating how contemporary relations between indigenous and Western knowledge systems continue to be shaped by the dynamics of power, the politics of property, and the apologetics of law.
