Did you know that suckerfish can attach themselves onto other fishes to get a free ride? Or that the markings on the young Koran fish resemble the sacred inscriptions of the Koran?

Price: $5.50

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 030306

Condition: New


The swift decline and present plight of India's wildlife make regular headlines. This book asks how we came to this point. Drawing on memoirs, archives and official records, Mahesh Rangarajan brings new insights to bear upon age-old encounters between human beings and the natural world in India. Chapters on the Ancient and Medieval periods sketch out India's early wildlife history. Nature's retreat against human onslaught over the past two centuries, and efforts to reverse that trend, are then addressed in greater detail. Mahesh Rangarajan has served as Corresponding Editor of the journal Env... View more info

Shifting Ground: People, Animals, and Mobility in India's Environmental History

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

Condition: New


The book hopes to highlight the conditions of captive elephants, as they are currently used and kept in India. Initially started as an informal documentation, Gods in Chains later expanded to become a ‘handbook of sorts’, for anyone wanting to know more of the reality behind the veil of glamour and majesty of the captive pachyderm, especially in temple rituals and festival processions. The often troubled and complex relationship with their only companion, the ‘mahout’, is also a story of pathos and heartbreak for a deeply social and community-minded animal.
