The Sardar Sarovar Dam Project: Selected Documents Hardcover – Import, 28 Jul 2007
'The Sardar Sarovar Project is one of India's most important stories, with a relevance beyond the country's borders, but alas, memories are short and the relevant material becomes quickly unavailable. That is why this book is extremely important. Here, Philippe Cullet has brought together all the major documents relating to this fascinating and often disturbing story. This is a very valuable achievement, and I am sure that this is going to be a basic reference book for many years to come.' Ramaswamy R. Iyer, New Delhi, India 'Lethal forms of developmentalism which cause as well as silence the voices of human suffering need careful archival as a resource for the renewal of human rights futures. This painstaking documentation speaks to us about the production of human rightlessness in the name of development and in so doing contributes to solidarity struggles against it. It should remain a compulsory reading both for the votaries and critics of development paradigms.' Upendra Baxi, University of Warwick, UK '...the volume is a necessary read for those who are interested in development displacement and students concerned with legal and policy framework of large development projects.' Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics
