About this book

This work examines the part that Hindu and Buddhist traditions could play in resolving the ecological problems facing the Indian sub-continent and South East Asia. The study is of global significance - the creation of more sustainable relationships between people and the natural world is one of the most urgent social and environmental problems of the new millennium. David Gosling bases his arguments on extensive fieldwork, framed by the socio-political context of religious change in the regions. He looks at the religions both historically and from a contemporary perspective.
