In the Belly of the River

by: Amita Baviskar
This book looks at the contemporary controversy over the construction of India's largest system of dams. It focuses most specifically on the lives of the tribals who will be displaced by the construction, and at what is being destroyed in the name of `development'. The book forces us to re-examine the politics of representation within the ideology of progressive movements, and will be of equal interest to scholars and social activists concerned about development, environment, and indigenous peoples.
