With this book Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt and Gopa Samanta offer an intimate glimpse into the microcosmic world of ‘hybrid environments’. Focusing on chars – the part-land part-water low-lying sandy masses that exist within the riverbeds in the floodplains of lower Bengal – the authors show how both as real-life examples and as metaphors chars straddle the conventional categories of land and water and how people who live on them fluctuate between legitimacy and illegitimacy. The result a study of human habitation in the nebulous space between land and water charts a new way of thinking about land people and people’s ways of life.Printed Pages: 294.
