Physiology and Behaviour of Animal Suffering by Neville G. Gregory
English | 22 Nov. 2004 | ISBN: 0632064684 | 280 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Suffering is a state of mind that is difficult to measure and analyse in human beings and considerably more so in animals. It is related to the environment in which we live and our physical and mental states.
Sustainability Conflicts in Coastal India: Hazards, Changing Climate and Development Discourses in the Sundarbans

Sustainability Conflicts in Coastal India: Hazards, Changing Climate and Development Discourses in the Sundarbans By Aditya Ghosh
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 255 Pages | ISBN : 3319638912 | 12.88 MB

This multidisciplinary work analyses challenges to sustainable development amidst rapidly changing climate in the world’s largest delta – the Sundarbans. Empirical evidence unpacks grounded vulnerabilities and reveals their temporal socio-economic impacts. A novel concept of ‘everyday disasters’ is proposed – supported by data and photographic evidence – that contests institutional disaster definition. Then it uncovers how the geopolitics of ecological governance and its hegemonic discourse dominate local policies, which in turn fail to address local socio-ecological concerns, adaptation needs and development aspirations.
