Environmental history of India has developed as an important field of inquiry in the last twenty-five years. While providing major insights, the existing scholarship has primarily focused on drawing sharp lines of distinction—those between geographical spaces (forest, rivers, farms), people (herders, farmers, townspeople), eras (colonial, post-colonial), and so on. The limitations of these sharp divides are brought to the forefront when there is a critical engagement with the region's contested environmental past. Shifting Ground brings together an array of essays that pose critical questi... View more info

Nature without Borders

By: Mahesh Rangarajan, M.D. Madhusudan & Ghazala Shahabuddin (Eds)

Price: $11.98

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Orient BlackSwan: 2014

Seller ID: 101931

ISBN: 8125056149

Condition: New


This book explores the ways in which conservation of biodiversity can coexist with human actions and interests through a series of eight essays. These are tied together by an analytical introduction by the editors. It seeks to supplement the dominant discourse of conservation in India, which has traditionally depended on fencing off fragments of habitats and guarding them against human encroachment. However, formally designated Protected Areas occupy a very small proportion of territory and are therefore limited in value. Nature and natural processes transcend human boundaries and cannot be co... View more info

Chakravarti Rajagopalachari, the last Governor General of India, was, in the words of his grandson Rajmohan Gandhi, a ‘prophetic political figure’ who predicted in 1916 the success of Gandhi’s satyagraha in India. A true follower of Gandhi, C.R., or Rajaji (as he was called), gave up a lucrative practice as a lawyer in 1919 to fight for the country’s independence. He explained Gandhi’s political moves to the Indian public in speeches, and in articles in Gandhi’s Young India. Gandhi spoke of Rajaji as one of satyagraha’s finest exponents and also as his ‘conscience-keeper’, a ... View more info
