Beschreibung

With a focus on colonial Bengal, this book demonstrates how the dynamics of agrarian prosperity or decline, communal conflicts, poverty and famine can only be properly understood from an ecological perspective as well as discussions of state's coercion and popular resistance, market forces and dependency, or contested cultures and consciousness.

'The book's...special contribution is to emphasize the enviornment...that too is obviously a subject worth investigating.' - Reviews in History
