Title Review

This contributory volume examines the interrelationship between nature and society in South Asia. It focuses on four points: perception of natural resources during colonial rule, conservation of nature, role of governments in administering environment, and transformation of nature as a result of development or industrial projects.

Thematically arranged, the book analyses the major decisions taken in India with regard to environment after Independence and their consequences; the relationship between communities which consider natural environment as an essential part of their identity and as a key factor for social, political and economical issues; and the urban explosion and/or the construction of infrastructure such as dams or roads that have impacted the relationship between different social groups and their territory. It also examines the set-up process and consequences of such projects in three different states of India.

Offering a wide variety of case studies representing a large panel of approaches and methodologies, this volume will be a useful read for students and scholars of environmental studies, and NGOs working towards conserving nature.
