Understanding the complexities of environmental problemsThis is a great book by Ram Guha. He introduces reader to the details of a complex topic. First describing what environmentalism means, how environmentalism in India is different than that of the US, how is India's environmentalism is related to survival of peasants, Guha finally makes the reader aware of the nature of environmental problems and portraying a relation between consumption of materials and environmentalism.

Timeline of environmentalism captured very lucidlyThe 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.
