Under their slogan, qEcology is permanent economyq, the aChipko Movementa drew world attention to the struggle over forest rights. Taking its name from the Hindi word for aembracea, villagers hugged trees and prevented contractorsAa from felling them. Dedicated to the protection of forests, the movement spread throughout India in the 1970s, changing the countryAas natural resource policy. Forest Futures argues that the hype took Chipko from its locale and took control away from local people. The portrayal of the Chipko movement largely ignored local histories of resistance, local conflicts and local forest practices. The book argues that the issues of forest control and sustainable forest use have to be seen in the context of concerns about social and economic development, regional autonomy, and the preferred futures of the local people.Bisht, Anand Singh, 1993, Van jage vanvasi jage, Almora: Uttarakhand Sewa Nidhi. ...
