About this book

Using the Sariska Tiger Reserve as one of its major anchors, this book analyses the historical, socio-political, and biological contexts of nature conservation in India in an effort to identify the malaise underlying the country's dominant conservation paradigm, which is primarily one of top-down control and exclusion. It then surveys alternative approaches to conservation emerging in India and elsewhere which attempt to reconcile social equity with biodiversity goals.
