Resources, Tribes and Development

Competing Interests and Contours of Possibilities

Edited by: M.C. Behera, Jumyir Basar

The papers included in this volume primarily focus on contradicting perspectives, competing interests, and emerging outcomes, when the relation between India's tribes and their resource perceptions shifts along the line of corporate induced development projects. Precisely, it is a compendium of issues related to development induced displacement. In a broad sense, the relation between India's ecology and economy has been examined, with reference to specific contexts in development practices where resource perception and utilization are contested by traditional and commercial users. The book will be handy for anyone who wants to know the full range of issues on tribal development vis-a-vis mega projects.
