Contested Grounds by Amita Baviskar

Book Description

This volume studies natural resources through the lens of cultural politics. It emphasizes the role of cultural politics and adds to the existing environmental debates. The essays allow us to think anew the taken-for-granted aspects of natural resources. Each article highlights a different facet of the natural resources debate. The term natural resources when examined along with such keywords as waste, scarcity, security, territory, sovereignty, conflict, expertise, and community opens up a distinctive world of meanings. These related keywords chart out the terrain of the cultural politics of natural resources.
