About the Author:

Lance E. Nelson is Assistant Professor of Theological and Religious Studies at the University of San Diego.

Review:

The book considers, in a thoughtful and analytical way, a timely issue: how important and basic traditional ideas like asceticism, karma and rebirth, and purity and impurity influence contemporary Indian thinking about the environment. It has an impressive and diverse array of contributors, and there is a nice balance of theory and fieldwork. It shows well how India is sacred ground (and water). Andrew O. Fort, Texas Christian University
This is the only book of which I am aware in the larger field of Indian studies and ecology where attention to religious textual resources is combined with the investigation of modern field contexts. Rachel Fell McDermott, Barnard College, Columbia University"
