Gives a detailed study of the Narmada Dams Project in India and exposes the large-scale manipulation and fraud that led to the approval of the project by the Indian Government. When it was first published in 1988, the Indian Government banned it. The World Bank which initially agreed to fund the Narmada project pulled out in early 1993 when the Indian Government failed to meet certain conditions. However the project seems to be continuing, amidst hunger strikes and strong protests from locals and opponents to the project. It is estimated that it will uproot over a million people and destroy 350,000 hectares of forest, leading to the extinction of valuable plant species and the mass slaughter of wildlife.
