'This work does repesent an important addition to the burgeoning literature on participatory forest management in South Asia' - Niaz Ahmed Khan, Contemporary South Asia

This book is the first to critically assess what is fast becoming an orthodoxy - that participatory approaches to forest management in India are necessary and sufficient for a regeneration of forest resources in the country. The book argues that the processes of creating, managing and evaluating participatory approaches to forest management are complex and difficult to sustain.
