Annotation:Chapple shows a distinctly South Asian environmental rhetoric consisting of rural and working-class movements as well as grassroots urban activism. He describes tribal, Post-Gandhian, and renouncer models of environmentalism in addition to outlining specifically Buddhist, Jaina, and Yogic inspired environmentalism. Utilizing a systems approach, and stressing the need for a modern program of education in India, Chapple seeks to maintain caution against the potential negative influences of modernization on traditional Indian culture and civilization.
