Hindu Faith and the Political Ecology of Dams on the Sacred Ganga
The University of Arizona Press
In River Dialogues, Georgina Drew offers a detailed ethnographic engagement with the social movements contesting hydroelectric development on the Ganga River. The book examines how complex cultural politics succeeded in influencing an unprecedented reversal of government plans for three contested hydroelectric projects, and how that decision sparked ripples of discontent after being paired with the declaration of a conservation zone where the projects were situated. River Dialogues critically engages with the growing global advocacy of the “green economy” model for environmental stewardship.
