About the Book

A nuanced look at how nature has been culturally constructed in South and Southeast Asia, Nature in the Global South is a major contribution to the understandings of the politics and ideologies of environment and development in a postcolonial epoch. The essays in this volume examine how the tropics, the jungle, tribes, and peasants are understood and transformed; how shifts in colonial ideas about the landscape led to the extremely deleterious changes in rural well-being; and how uneasy environmental compromises are forged in the present among the rural, urban, and global allies.
