The discourse of ‘green growth’ has recently gained ground in environmental governance deliberations and policy proposals. It is presented as a fresh and innovative agenda centred on the deployment of engineering sophistication, managerial acumen and market mechanisms to redress the environmental and social derelictions of the existing development model. But the green growth project is deeply inadequate, whether assessed against criteria of social justice or the achievement of sustainable economic life upon a materially finite planet. This volume outlines three main lines of critique.

The book is divided into four thematic sections covering 14 chapters and introduction by historians and scholars in order to understand the regional environmental history in the Indian subcontinent. Recently some historians have started to focus on regional environmental history as a way to systemize their study of the interaction between humans and nature. These regions have always existed in the Indian subcontinent for a long time. This approach inspires the historians to create a new outlook in writing of environmental history from regional perspective.
