'Telling, arguing, and analysing throughout this rich and original work, Seema Arora-Jonsson makes a strong theoretical case "for gender as integral to our analyses in order to be able to meet environmental and developmental challenges"'- Lars Rudebeck, Uppsala University, Development in Practice "Gender, Development and Environmental Governance is indeed an enlightening work in more ways than one. Especially admirable is the elan with which Arora-Jonsson pulls off a seemingly unsustainable project-comparing a highly developed and a developing society... Gender, Development and Environmental Governance is a valuable contribution to the corpus of the theoretical literature on gender and environmental studies and a must read for all gender and environment scholars."- Etee Bahadur, Journal of South Asian Development "The most significant contribution on of this book is its unconventional examination of daily life and informal networks, filtered through a gendered analysis... This is a great effort in undoing the sometimes artificial divide between the North and South. Because of its strengths in analyzing gender dynamics and its comparative nature, this book will be extremely interesting to those interested in issues of environmental governance, development, and gender."- Meenakshi Narayan, Michigan State University, Gendered Perspectives on International Development
