Annotation:Linking environmental activism in India today to historical forms of resistance to British colonialism, Akula traces the evolution of eighteenth century resistance movements into contemporary forms of grassroots environmentalism. He gives a brief overview of the ecological history of India, focusing on the destructive impacts of colonialism and distinguishing between five different types of grassroots resistance. Despite increasingly dire environmental conditions and destructive development policies, he finds hope in recent attempts by diverse movements to form alliances against global capitalism.
