Religion and Ecology in India and Southeast Asia
"David Gosling's arguments are based on his fieldwork in the region and are framed by the socio-political context of religious change in India and southeast Asia, where it is maintained that the development-led analysis of Amartya Sen, with its emphasis on participative education, healthcare and a reduction of the gender imbalance, is a crucial prerequisite for social and environmental improvement. Though regional in scope, this is a study of global significance, considering the most urgent social and environmental problems of the new millennium."--BOOK JACKET.
