Book Title:Who will Save the Forests?: Knowledge, Power and Environmental Destruction
Editor(s):Banuri, Tariq; Apffel-Marglin, Frederique
Religion(s):Hinduism
Publisher Name:Zed
Place of Publication:London
Date of Publication:1993
Annotation:This collection of essays explores the effects of modernity on human communities and the natural world by considering competing knowledge systems, “modern” and “non-modern,” on the issue of forest management. Case studies from India, Finland, and Maine are used to emphasize local forms of knowledge and non-modern technologies as providing an alternative “rationale” to the dominant scientific, managerial, and bureaucratic approach to forestry that has been identified with modernity.
