9780195633412: This Fissured Land: An Ecological History of India (Oxford India Paperbacks)

Using a general theory of ecological history, the authors provide a fresh interpretation of India's history, including an ecological account of the caste system and a sociological analysis of resource use. Madhav Gadgil, a professor of ecological sciences, and Ramachandra Guha, a professor of sociology, present in this volume a collaborative perspective on the subcontinent which is rare, pathbreaking, and long overdue.
