Ecology and Equity explores a society that is, in ecological terms, the most complex in the world. India???s people range from technocrats to hunter-gatherers and its environments from dense forest to wasteland. This book provides the first analytically sophisticated and empirically grounded study of environmental reform in the Third World.
Radical both in its interpretation of the crisis in India and in its proposals for ecological reform, Ecology and Equity is essential reading for all concerned with the Third World development and/or the environmental debate.
