Annotation:After identifying the conflict between two different approaches to development in India, the traditional, sustainable model that focuses on local communities and the growth and prosperity model that emphasizes modernization and globalization, Sampat considers various social and environmental problems that have resulted from rapid development, industrialization, and Green Revolution activism since the 1990s. Arguing that radical changes must be made in natural resource management and distribution in order to strike a balance between the needs of the India’s growing population and its natural resource base, he offers some suggestions for how India can begin to cope with these problems.
