About this book

Language: English

Shyam Sunder S. and Parameswarappa S. are two foresters, who between them administered, for about 15 years, over four million hectares of forests, including in the Western Ghats of India. In Forest Conservation Concerns in India they trace the critical junctures of forest conservation and management in India, of the battle between practical conservation and arm chair environmentalists, and describe in detail the changing condition of forests from around 1850 onwards. Marshaling evidence from a variety of sources, they take aim at the simple-minded world view of some prominent academics, laying bare the factual inaccuracies and misrepresentations in the management of Indian forests.
