Article/Chapter Title:Environmental Attitudes of Indian Elites: Challenging Western Postmodernist Models
Journal Title:Asian Survey
Author(s):Peritore, N. Patrick
Date of Publication:1993
Annotation:Dissatisfied with Western models of environmental attitudes that assume a postmodern, postindustrial context, Peritore presents an alternative based on fieldwork done with professional elites in New Delhi, Udaipur, Jaipur, Calcutta, and Bombay in 1990. Identifying three “Indian opinion types” and four “administrative action types,” he maps these onto axes of Indian-Western and Traditional-Modern to create a complex model better suited to what he defines as the “amalgam of extant cultural elements” that constitutes Indian environmentalism (p 817).
