About this book

Brings the Chipko movement back from the realm of myth into the world of geographical history. It reveals how the biogeography of the region has been shaped by struggles over resources and livelihoods, and illustrates how Chipko as environmental myth has added a new layer of frustrations to communities now embroiled in a struggle for regional autonomy.
