The Politics of Water Resource Development in India

The Case of Narmada

by Wood, John R

This book is about the politics of water resource development and management in India, with special reference to the Narmada river waters dispute. Author John R. Wood draws on a wealth of studies on Narmada as well as his own research to analyze the controversy from the perspective of a political scientist. Analyzing three aspects of the conflict over developing the waters of the Narmada, the author objectively highlights how and why the outcomes of such struggles have largely depended on the realities of power.
