Inspired by a conference held at Columbia U. in March 1992 (though the roster of contributors extends beyond those who participated in the conference), this volume emerges from an attempt to understand development and the resistance to it in the contemporary world. Its subject is the development efforts in the Narmada River valley in central and western India, particularly the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP). The 17 chapters are organized into seven parts: introduction; overviews of the SSP; histories of resistance to the SSP; resettlement and rehabilitation; technical and environmental concerns and alternatives; the independent review; and politics and development. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
