Annotation:Aiming to contribute to necessary cost-benefit analyses of the extended process of human intervention in and increased control over the natural environment, this study focuses on land use and rural development in northern India during a 100 year period. The authors document various changes in the land and in land use policies and conclude that while colonial and postcolonial governmental policies have increased the productive capacity of the land and of society, the serious depletion of natural resources that has accompanied this process threatens to halt further development.
