About this book

This book looks at the Coromandel Coast in southern India and the manner in which diverse groups of people regulate access to and use of its fish resources. This meticulous study is a distinct contribution to social theory since it links the study of sea tenure to the discourse on legal pluralism, while simultaneously embedding social theories in the dynamic realities of people's struggles.
