Acclaimed for its unique ecosystem and Royal Bengal tigers, the mangrove islands that comprise the Sundarbans area of the Bengal delta are the setting for this pioneering anthropological work. The key question that the author explores is: what do tigers mean for the islanders of the Sundarbans? The diverse origins and current occupations of the local population produce different answers to this question – but for all, ‘the tiger question’ is a significant social marker. Far more than through caste, tribe or religion, the Sundarbans islanders articulate their social locations and interactions by reference to the non-human world – the forest and its terrifying protagonist, the man-eating tiger. The book combines rich ethnography on a little-known region with contemporary theoretical insights to provide a new frame of reference to understand social relations in the Indian subcontinent. It will be of interest to scholars and students of anthropology, sociology, development studies, religion and cultural studies, as well as those working on environment, conservation, the state and issues relating to discrimination and marginality.

Revisiting India’s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics brings together scholars from across the globe to provide diverse perspectives on the continuing impact of the 1947 division of India on the eve of independence from the British Empire. The Partition caused a million deaths and displaced well over 10 million people. The trauma of brutal violence and displacement still haunts the survivors as well as their children and grandchildren. Nearly 70 years after this cataclysmic event, Revisiting India’s Partition explores the impact of the “Long Partition,” a concept developed by Vazira Zamindar to underscore the ongoing effects of the 1947 Partition upon all South Asian nations. In our collection, we extend and expand Zamindar’s notion of the Long Partition to examine the cultural, political, economic, and psychological impact the Partition continues to have on communities throughout the South Asian diaspora. The nineteen interdisciplinary essays in this book provide a multi-vocal, multi-focal, transnational commentary on the Partition in relation to motifs, communities, and regions in South Asia that have received scant attention in previous scholarship. In their individual essays, contributors offer new engagements on South Asia in relation to several topics, including decolonization and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes and terrorism, and nationalism. This book is dedicated to covering areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of how Sindh and Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma call for special attention in coming to terms with memory, culture and politics surrounding the Partition.

This multidisciplinary work analyses challenges to sustainable development amidst rapidly changing climate in the world’s largest delta – the Sundarbans. Empirical evidence unpacks grounded vulnerabilities and reveals their temporal socio-economic impacts. A novel concept of ‘everyday disasters’ is proposed – supported by data and photographic evidence – that contests institutional disaster definition. Then it uncovers how the geopolitics of ecological governance and its hegemonic discourse dominate local policies, which in turn fail to address local socio-ecological concerns, adaptation needs and development aspirations. Absence of local vocabularies, cognitive values and socio-cultural contexts along with spatially constricted, exclusionary, top-down techno-science approaches further escalate knowledge-action gaps. Deconstruction of multiscalar conflicts between the global rhetoric and transformative postcolonial geographies offers an ethical, Southern perspective of sustainability.

Die Klimabewegung ist eine erst vor wenigen Jahren entstandene soziale Bewegung. Zu ihren Mitgliedern zählen Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGOs), Netzwerke, Aktivisten und andere Akteure. Sie engagieren sich auf lokaler, nationaler und internationaler Ebene gegen die gesellschaftlichen Ursachen des Klimawandels und für die gerechte Eindämmung seiner Folgen. Auch aufgrund ihrer vielfältigen Akteure und Aktionsformen ist die Klimabewegung bereits heute zu einem wichtigen Faktor für die Zukunft des Politikfelds herangewachsen. Das Handbuch gibt einen aktuellen und systematischen Überblick über das noch junge Forschungsfeld – über die Klimabewegung als Gesamtphänomen wie auch ihre wichtigsten Akteure und Strukturen. Verschiedene methodische und theoretische Zugriffe werden genutzt sowie ausgewählte Länder in Fallstudien untersucht. Das Handbuch ist eine Einladung und erste Anlaufstelle für alle, die sich grundlegend mit den Formen der Klimabewegung, ihren Herausforderungen und Chancen befassen wollen.

The tourists of Sundarbans including the researchers are always interested to know more about the unknown fact with regard to the people of these amazing forests and tiger-land of Sundarbans, their daily struggle for survival, their cultural heritage and also about the forests and wild life in particular. But, hardly the find all the information available to their satisfaction and need. Obviously, at the end of their journey over Sundarbans the tourists or the researchers get disappointed. On the other hand, its true that the numerous and vast islands of Sundarbans located at the remotest corners of Sundarban delta hold certain historical, ecological and anthropological back ground which are still untold or even unexplored. Hence, It is also equally essential to bring about all these hidden treasure of information attached to this unique ‘world heritage site’ to the knowledge of all concerned, tourists and foreigners as well. A continual & detailed search over a period of last 18 years conducted through the Indian and Bangladesh parts of Sundarbans on the various aspects/issues could reveal probably a part of such untold and unexplored treasure of information. As a result, the proposed Hand Book or the Tourist Guide will surely provide a fair idea to the tourists, foreigners and researchers about the most fascinating subject matters of different aspects of Sundarbans concerning history, people, life, wild life and mangrove-brakish water-marine ecology of Sundarbans through informative as well as vivid pictorial presentation.
