How Much Should A Person Consume: Thinking Through The Environment (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 539

This book has been written after two decades of research and gives the readers a comparative history of environmentalism in India and the United States.

Summary of the Book

India and the United States are ecologically and culturally diverse democracies that have different histories when it comes to the preservation of their environment. Ramachandra Guha, the author of this book, talks about the environmental philosophies in these two countries: agrarianism in India and wilderness thinking in the United States. The book provides a social ecology framework that is a step above these ideologies. He comes down to a richer understanding of controversies concerning large dams, state forests and wildlife reserves. He has criticized the supporters of conservation who fight for the conservation of biospheres that care for humans and other species. He has also packed in the profiles of three impressive environmental thinkers and activists: Lewis Mumford, Chandi Prasad Bhatt, and Madhav Gadgil. In the end, the author has asked readers how much they think they should consume.

Understanding the complexities of environmental problems

This 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 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.
