About this book

Khagram provides a detailed ethnographic account of the transnational struggles around the Narmada River Valley Dam Projects, a huge complex of 30 large and more than 3,000 small dams. He offers a comparative historical analysis of the political economy of big dam projects in India, Brazil, South Africa and China, and examines the changing behaviour of international agencies and global companies.
