Frontiers of Environment: Issues in Medieval and Early Modern India

Monday 09 October 2017

The complex nature of environmental history and debates on environmental issues have related primarily to contemporary times.

The essays in Frontiers of Environment explore the nuances of the environment in medieval–early modern times, discuss the specificities of different regions, and provide a comparative analysis on nature, pastoralism, irrigation, wildlife and tribes, in order to assess human–environment interaction. From the interest in nature shown by the Mughals to the ways in which rivers and forests have shaped communities, this volume highlights the linkages between the environment and social structure.
