River and Life
The story of a historic and tenacious people's movement,
the Narmada Bachao Andolan
We are shortly publishing Sanjay Sangvai's book, 'The River and Life: People's Struggle in the Narmada Valley'. A reproduction of the back-jacket text of the book is given below, for your information. As you are aware, this people's movement has fought many battles, and won a number of them. (eg: being the first to force the World Bank to review its project and withdraw from it). The larger struggle, however -- for justice and ecologically sane development -- continues, with many challenges ahead, on many fronts.
The book provides a comprehensive over-view of the key issues, and the history of this path-breaking movement over the last 15 years. The book is expected to be out by mid-July, 2000. It is proposed to be priced at Rs 150 (within India) and $12 (outside India).
As a special pre-publication offer, the book will be available at a substantially lower price of Rs 100 per copy (within India) and $10 per copy (outside India) -- for those who send in their orders along with payment by 30th July, 2000. (Packing and postage will be free.)Please contact:
