How Much Should A Person Consume? : Thinking Through The Environment (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.350

Based on research conducted over two decades, this accessible and deeply felt book provides a provocative comparative history of environmentalism in two large ecologically and culturally diverse democracies ? India and the United States. Ramachandra Guha takes as his point of departure the dominant environmental philosophies in these two countries ? identified as ?agrarianism? in India and ?wilderness thinking? in the United States. Proposing an inclusive ?social ecology? framework that goes beyond these partisan ideologies, Guha arrives at a richer understanding of controversies over large dams, state forests, wildlife reserves, and more. He offers trenchant critiques of privileged and isolationist proponents of conservation, persuasively arguing for biospheres that care as much for humans as for other species. He also provides profiles of three remarkable environmental thinkers and activists ? Lewis Mumford, Chandi Prasad Bhatt, and Madhav Gadgil. Finally, the author asks the fundamental environmental question ? how much should a person or country consume? ? and explores a range of answers.

Understanding the complexities of environmental problems

This is a great book by Ram Guha. He introduces reader to the details of a complex topic.

Timeline of environmentalism captured very lucidly

The book is a comprehensive summary of comparative history of environmentalism in India and the US focusing on the major strands of the movement. I loved how it traced environmental thinking in India to the works of Dietrich Brandis, Patrick Geddes and Lewis Mumford in the middle nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This is a short easy read, no high intellectual prowess required but really helps one in contextualizing the environmental movement.
