TEAK AND ARECANUT

MARLENE BUCHY

Foreword by JACQUES PONCHEPADAS, KAPILA VATSYAYAN AND S. PARAMESWARAPPA

1996 xxiv+225pp. chro., gloss, bibl, index,  ISBN: 0971-3085, Rs. 330(PB)


This uniquely detailed study of the most wooded districts in India-North Canara (Uttara Kannada) in the Western Ghāṭs, Karnataka, reveals that economic stake as well as a conservation agenda were at the centre of the British forest policy in the area. The study also argues that one of the most destructive consequence of colonial intervention was the disruption of social organization, which was originally closely linked to the environment. In understanding these socio-economic changes, one may find some answers to the challenge of contemporary attempts to reconcile the needs of the local communities with the conservation of a vulnerable environment.
