Dazzled by India s meteoric economic rise, we hesitate to acknowledge its costs to the people and the environment. Churning the Earth engages in a timely inquiry and presents incontrovertible evidence on how the nature of this recent growth has been predatory. Unfettered development has damaged the ecological basis that makes life possible for hundreds of millions and has increased the chasm between the rich and the poor, threatening the future of India as a civilization.

Rich with data and stories, this eye-opening critique of India s development strategy argues for a radical ecological democracy based on the principles of environmental sustainability, social equity and livelihood security. Churning the Earth is unique in presenting not only what is going wrong in India but also the ways out of the crisis that globalized growth has precipitated.
