This volume analyses how popular attitudes to environmental protection have changed over time villagers in Kumaon who set forests on fire to protest British regulations to protect the environment in the 1920s themselves began to conserve the forests by the 1990s. This innovative historical and political study explains the emergence of environmental identities and changes in state-locality relations and how the two are related. Thus it demonstrates that scholarship on common property, political ecology, and feminist environmentalism can be combined an approach Agrawal calls environmentality to better understand changes in conservation efforts. This understanding is relevant far beyond Kumaon. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and archival research, this book brings environment and development studies, new institutional economics and Foucauldian theories of power and subjectivity to bear on its ethnographical and historical research. It will interest scholars across social sciences parti cularly environment and development studies, institutional economics, ethnography, historical research, activists, and policy planners. Printed Pages: 344.
