Under their slogan, "Ecology is permanent economy", the ‘Chipko Movement’ drew world attention to the struggle over forest rights. Taking its name from the Hindi word for ‘embrace’, villagers hugged trees and prevented contractors´ from felling them. Dedicated to the protection of forests, the movement spread throughout India in the 1970s, changing the country´s natural resource policy.Forest Futures argues that the hype took Chipko from its locale and took control away from local people. The portrayal of the Chipko movement largely ignored local histories of resistance, local conflicts and local forest practices. The book argues that the issues of forest control and sustainable forest use have to be seen in the context of concerns about social and economic development, regional autonomy, and the preferred futures of the local people., hardcover, Label: Seagull Books, Seagull Books, Product group: Book, Published: 2008-02-01, Studio: Seagull Books, Sales rank: 11793407

From Seller/Antiquarian, star Book House Hyd
In the 1970s and 1980s, struggles over forest rights in the Garhwal Himalayas drew worldwide attention via the Chipko movement. To a large extent, this also entailed a subsuming of local experiences under global discourses: many of the messages and meanings of the Chipko movement’s varied struggles were homogenized, changed and rewritten. Antje Linkenbach persuasively argues that global representation took away narrative control from local actors and removed Chipko from the specificity of its locale, from its village contexts. Her attempt is to relocate forest issues and struggles by revisiting the perspectives of leading activists and local residents. She discusses prominent representations of Chipko in relation to local histories of resistance, local representational contestations and local forest practices all set against a backdrop of local reflections on Chipko and its aftermath. She argues that the issues of forest control and sustainable forest use have to be seen in the context of concerns about social and economic development, regional autonomy and imaginations of preferred futures among people actually resident in the region. Built on an impressive edifice of fieldwork, this book will interest ecologists, environmental historians, social anthropologists and political scientists. hardcover, संस्करण: First, लेबल: Permanent Black, Permanent Black, उत्पाद समूह: Book, प्रकाशित: 2007, स्टूडियो: Permanent Black, बिक्री रैंक: 586172
