Book Title:Nature, Culture, and Imperialism: Essays on the Environmental History of South Asia
Editor(s):Arnold, David; Guha, Ramachandra
Publisher Name:Oxford University Press
Place of Publication:Delhi
Date of Publication:1995
Annotation:As the essays in this volume variously point out, the vast diversity of landscapes, ecological zones, and cultures in South Asia is both challenging and illuminating for environmental historians. Various agents of environmental change are addressed, including the role of the state, European colonization, domestic conflicts over resources, struggles for cultural meanings, and external forces such as migration, trade, and religion. Contributors also discuss the distinct form of environmentalism that has developed in South Asia as a result of its history and diversity.
