For over three decades, Madhav Gadgil has been a crusading scientist with a broad range of interests, from conservation biology and ecological history to human ecology. This book brings together his best essays. They deal with many facets of the natural world and the world of humans, and how the two impinge on each other. Gadgil argues passionately against directing energy, water and raw materials towards intensive agriculture and urban development at the cost of the rural poor. Madhav Gadgil has a Ph.D. in mathematical ecology from Harvard University. He teaches and researches at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, with visiting appointments at the universities of Stanford and Berkeley. His books include the co-authored This Fissured Land and Ecology and Equity. Printed Pages: 260 with 20 pictures.
