Book Title:Ecology and Equity: The Use and Abuse of Nature in Contemporary India
Author(s):Gadgil, Madhav
Religion(s):Hinduism
Publisher Name:Routledge
Place of Publication:London and New York
Date of Publication:1995
Annotation:Through published materials, fieldwork, and discussions with academics, activists, and administrators, Gadgil and Guha examine environmental issues in the context of India and offer a constructive proposal based on their belief that care for the environment must be integrated into public policy. Dividing Indian society into three classes, omnivores, ecosystem people, and ecological refugees, they consider the differences between these classes in relation to the environment and contend that conflict over resources has generated “a vibrant environmental movement” in India that is diverse in terms of constituency, perspectives, and strategies.
