Nucleus and nation : scientists, international networks, and power in India by Robert S Anderson( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the long institutional and individual preparations for India's first nuclear test and its consequences, Anderson begins with the careers of India's renowned scientists--Meghnad Saha, shanti Bhatnagar, Homi Bhabha, and their patron Jawaharlal Nehru--in the first half of the twentieth century before focusing on the evolution of the large and complex scientific community--especially the roles of its leader Vikram Sarabhai and his patron Indira Gandhi--in the later part of the era. By contextualizing Indian debates over nuclear power within the larger conversation about modernization and industrialization, Anderson hones in on the thorny issue of the integration of science into the self-reliant ideals of Indian nationalism. In this way, Nucleus and Nation is more than a history of nuclear science, engineering, and the Indian Atomic Energy Commission; it is a unique perspective on the history of Indian nationhood and the drama and politics of its scientific community. --Book Jacket

Islands, forests and gardens in the Caribbean : conservation and conflict in environmental history( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The continuing struggle to preserve the ecological abundance of the eastern Caribbean is a recurrent theme in this collection of essays on the gardens (both botanical and small holdings) and the forests of such diverse islands as Martinique, St. Vincent, St. Domingue (present Haiti), and Barbados. It pays homage to the indigenous Caribbean people and imported slaves and their descendants, who fashioned gardens in remote jungles to achieve both personal dignity and independence from the slave and post-slave plantation economy. The book's pioneers include botanists and gardeners from many countries, who strove to introduce food crops and medicines to the Caribbean for an ever-growing population, and enlightened local administrators, who tried to prevent the rashes of deforestation and its consequent climate changes wherever they could. This includes, in contemporary times, Dr. Earle Kirby of Kingstown, who has studied and acted on these questions all his life, and in whose honour this book is created. The contributors' essays allow readers to understand the interplay of very local conditions and individual initiatives with larger global dynamics and structures, in order for all interested parties to build the environmental institutions needed to protect this region from growing multi-national exploitation."--Jacket
