Informative and thought-provoking . . . Ecological Nationalisms is a must-read for serious scholars of South Asia studies. * American Anthropologist * [Ecological Nationalisms] opens the door to a remarkably wide body of research and enquiry. Most of the studies are not only very detailed but soundly based in an historical and conceptual background. The result is not easy reading but certainly provides an excellent base for understanding the interactive patterns at work in each of the areas studied.. it would be very valuable indeed to post-graduate students focusing on related problems and to senior practitioners. * Electronic Green Journal * Ecological Nationalisms, an edited volume of essays. . . is an ambitious and successful addition to the steadily growing literature on South Asian environmental history. . . . This work asks many good questions and should inspire subsequent research. * Environmental History * The cases in Ecological Nationalisms- much too rich to summarize here- all take different positions on the relative importance of the ideas, interests, and identities activated or deployed in the politics of nature. . . . Beautifully produced, rich in content, and important; it is genuinely South Asian in scope and both international and interdisciplinary in execution. * Journal of Asian Studies * The editors of this volume have begun a valuable process of understanding which must now be pursued. * Journal of Contemporary Asia *
