The volume discusses global commons against the complex global political relations. It explores the nature of the global economic crisis, the search for finding a solution to the climate change problem, and efforts to conserve biodiversity in their centres of origin. The narratives from withinIndia - the desert terrains of Rajasthan, the hills of Darjeeling, and the Western Ghats - reach across the borders to the world of industrial complexes in the North that produce and spew chemicals for disposal and re-use in the South, the soft belly of the globe.
A. Damodaran is Professor and Chairperson PGPPM at the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore.
