About this Item: Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Concern for the environment is not new; it has always existed. One of the flash points in the inner conflicts within human societies of the past was fuelled by the continues efforts to resolve the legitimate use of the natural world. Nature is one of those spaces where we observe the most intense form of class struggle and power politics -the more privileged control the natural resources. The rapid unfolding of power relations, the rise of new technology to exploit the environment, the growing resource crunch, and a perceived `environmental crisis` have resulted in the development of a new field of study -environmental history, an important gateway to knowledge in general and Environmental Studies in Particular. Situating Environment History, brings together several eminent scholars who share a common interest in the environmental history of South Asia. The work is divided in four sections. In Section I, Understanding Environmental History, Karl Jacoby, Alok Kumar Ghosh, Arun Bandopadhyaya and Archana Prasad contribute to our understanding of environmentalism, its historiography and the role of state legislation and the popular response thereto. In Section II, Communities on the Margin, Viniya Damodaran and Ritajyoti Bandyopadhyay focus on different communities in the periphery lying outside the supposed `mainstream` and their fight for their own perceptions of `justice` and `legitimate claims`. In Section III, Colonialism, Post-Colonialism, the State and the management of Nature, Kaushik Roy, Arabinda Samanta, Amal Das, Sahara Ahmed, Jagdish N. Sinha and Sumit Guha look at the evolution of state policy on environmental questions through different periods of Indian history. In Section IV, Beyond India, Rita Pemberton, Lawrence Gundersen and Tridib Chakrabarti study environmental issues in the countries beyond India.

About this Item: Primus Books, 2016. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. This volume delves deeply into historical research in order to exemplify theoretical claims of historical meta-narratives and to explain the present predicament of environmentalism. The consequences of colonialism, industrialization and capitalist interventions in the environment have brought the colonized regions of South Asia into focus and made environmental history a field of great importance. Accordingly, the essays herein highlight the importance of comparative studies within the field of environmental history. From the legacy of colonial forest policies to contemporary watershed programmes, these essays address several of India’s more prominent environmental history issues, placing them within the comparative frameworks of time, region, society and culture.

About this Item: Primus Books, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. This book seeks to understand archaeological sites and their relationship with a dynamic alluvial environment in north Bengal, India, between c.600-1800 CE with a special focus on the excavations at the site of Balupur. Moving away from the prevalent emphasis on the study of art and architecture, this work aims to bring back the 'human' to the study of these cultural periods through a study of the formation and changing character of past habitation settlements. Multidisciplinary work involving archaeology, geography, zoology, botany, sedimentology and paleoanthropology sought to understand the interaction between changes in the landscape and various aspects of cultural adaptation in a zone where humans are constantly living with floods and shifting river courses. Efforts have also been made to understand the methodology of studying archaeological sites in a turbulent terrain of the Ganga, an aspect not well understood in the Indian context. An important contribution of this volume is also a diachronic study of the fluvial environment of this region using rare maps, satellite images and field studies. Profusely illustrated with numerous maps, drawings and photos this book is useful for students and researchers of archaeology, history and earth sciences. Seller Inventory # 116757

About this Item: Manohar, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Foreword. Preface. Introduction. 1. Administrative reports. 2. Famine reports. 3. Revenue settlement reports. Index. This volume is part of the Project of Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) on documents pertaining to the economic history of British rule in India covering the period 1858-1947. The present volume contains a wide range of economic documents for southern India roughly covered by the Madras Presidency of British India in the late nineteenth century. The volume is divided into two parts, Part I (1860s-1870s) and Part II (1880s-1890s). Documents in Part I (both A&B) are collected from a wide spectrum of human activity in southern India. They include materials from diverse fields such as agriculture, forestry, population, public health, education and sanitation, in each of which the British Raj was involved in collecting information and directing the courses of development in more than one sense. It is widely believed that the high land revenue regime attendant with tortures in the second quarter of the nineteenth century came to an end in Madras Presidency from the 1860s onwards, while the agricultural depression of the earlier period had supposedly ended. This belief is confronted by the documents presented in this volume. The documents, however, suggest that a high land revenue demand still continued in many parts of the Madras Presidency along with the application of coercive measures in the 1860s and 1870s, while agricultural prices were widely fluctuating. Public health, was in a dismal situation, and there were frequent outbreaks of cholera, small pox and fever. There was some improvement in the realm of education but even elementary education mostly depended on private initiatives. Scarcity and famine were closely connected. Documents, included in this volume bear testimony to all these. The volume will be an important resource for students of the history of economic and human development of India. (jacket).
