1 Ramachandra Guha
An Anthropologist Among the Marxists and Other Essays
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8178240017 / 9788178240015; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
“Inside every thinking Indian there is a Gandhian and a Marxist struggling for supremacy”, says Ramachandra Guha in the opening sentence of this wonderfully readable book of ideas, opinions and reflections. A substantial portion of the book expands on this salvo: it analyses Gandhians and pseudo-Gandhians, Marxists and anti-Marxists, Nehruvians and anti-Secularists, Democrats and Stalinists, scientists and historians, environmentalists and cricketers in short, it examines and discusses all those who comprise the intellectual life of thinking Indians today.

2 Ramachandra Guha
Gandhi Before India
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670083879 / 9780670083879; Softcover; New; 
In 1893, when Mohandas Gandhi set sail for South Africa, he was a 23-year-old briefless lawyer who had failed to establish himself in India. The two decades that he spent in South Africa were to be the making of the Mahatma. In this remarkable biography, Ramachandra Guha argues that Gandhi’s ideas were fundamentally shaped before his return to India in 1915. It was during his years in England and South Africa that he came to understand the nature of imperialism and racism; and it was in South Africa that he forged the philosophy and techniques that would undermine and ultimately destroy the British Empire.

3 Ramachandra Guha
How Much Should a Person Consume?: Thinking Through the Environment
Permanent Black; Delhi, India; 2006; 8178241587 / 9788178241586; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book presents a provocative comparative history of environmentalism through a study of two large, ecologically and culturally diverse democracies—India and the United States. Guha takes as his point of departure the dominant environmental philosophies in these two countries, identified here as ‘agrarianism’ in India and ‘wilderness thinking’ in the USA. He then proposes an inclusive theoretical framework, ‘social ecology’, which goes beyond these partisan and partial ideologies. This ‘social ecology’ framework is deployed in Guha’s analysis of environmental thought as well as in arriving at a richer understanding of controversies over large dams, state forests, and wildlife reserves. Profiles of three remarkable environmental thinkers and activists—Lewis Mumford, Chandi Prasad Bhatt, and Madhav Gadgil—follow. The concluding chapter poses what the author regards as the fundamental environmental question—how much should a person or country consume?—and explores various answers. Based on research done over two decades, and written with the author's characteristic verve and flair, this book ranges widely over a vast intellectual terrain. It brims with ideas and information on environmental histories, environmental philosophies, environmental scholars, and environmental activists. Guha offers trenchant critiques of privileged and isolationist proponents of conservation, persuasively arguing the case for biospheres that care as much for humans as for other species with which humans must share the earth. How Much Should a Person Consume? is an accessible and deeply felt summation of one pioneering and influential scholar’s views on environmentalism. Like everything else by Ramachandra Guha, this book wears its immense learning lightly. It will be ‘necessary reading’ within the academy even while attracting a large general readership by its lucidity and elegance. Printed Pages: 276. 031516

5 Vaibhav Purandare; Foreword By Ramachandra Guha
Sachin Tendulkar-A Definitive Biography
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8174363602 / 9788174363602; Fourth Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 
This is not a scorebook, nor is it an accumulation of facts or the extension of a globally recognised brand. This is the first in-depth and comprehensive biography of Sachin Tendulkar, and it puts Sachin the cricketer and the human being in perspective. Tendulkar’s story is told here grippingly, with a wealth of rare, unpublished anecdotes that throw fresh light on a remarkable career. The book probes the psychological birth and growth of the world’s leading batsman, examines the historical forces that shaped his personal and cricketing character, analyses his cricket planning and actions and evaluates the history the man himself has created, whether by making his Test debut at 16 or by breaking records with a stunning regularity. It just as carefully chronicles and discusses his disappointments, failures and the controversies that have cropped up around his name, and provides an insight into Tendulkar the man, who has for so long been kept from public view. Above all, the book places Tendulkar in the context of the international cricket tradition and determines his exact place in world cricket history. Capacious and yet crisp, Sachin Tendulkar: A Definitive Biography is Tendulkar in totality. Printed Pages: 426 with 8 coloured plates. 010481

6 Ramachandra Guha
The Last Liberal and Other Essays
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178242192 / 9788178242194; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Guha’s book is a meditation on how a large area of contemporary India's cultural and intellectual life has in fact been fashioned by exceptional individuals who have, in diverse ways, imbibed the spirit of liberalism, secularism, personal integrity and social commitment. Guha's heroes and heroines include environmentalists and social activists, teachers and scholars, scientists and writers, politicians and bureaucrats. Quietly purposeful and publicity-shy figures are described and discussed in finely crafted pieces, as are others whose career and achievements have been more public and prominent.

7 Ramachandra Guha
The Unquiet Woods: Ecological Change and Peasant Resistance in the Himalaya (Twentieth Anniversary Edition)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178243784 / 9788178243788; Softcover; New; 
Popular initiatives to halt deforestation in the Himalaya, such as the Chipko movement, are globally renowned. It is less well known that these movements have a history stretching back more than a hundred years. A proper understanding of this long duration within the forests of submontane North India required the marriage of two scholarly traditions: the sociology of peasant protest and the ecologically oriented study of history. Twenty years ago there appeared on this subject an unknown author’s first book: The Unquiet Woods (1989) by Ramachandra Guha. Fairly quickly, the book came to be recognized as not just another study of dissenting peasants but as something of a classic which had willy nilly opened up a whole new field— environmental history in South Asia. While the monograph has as a consequence been continuously in print within India and in the West since then, its author has become a biographer and historian of international stature.Printed Pages: 280. 101787
