Book Review
Ecosystem Management: Towards Merging Theory and Practice by Dhrubajyoti Ghosh, New Delhi, Nimby Books, 2014; pp 270, Rs 390 paperback.

The author sets the tone of this book early on by making a statement that, "We are constantly avoiding an elementary question. What will be the impact on our ecosystem earth of the growing population of the relatively poor and exponentially growing consumption of the relatively rich? A reminder: we do not have endlessly stretchable resources in nature. We are trying to avoid the consequence of this profligacy by being silent or positioning ourselves in some feeble hideouts" (p 6).
