The ‘Climate Change and India: Analysis of Political Economy and Impact’ is primarily beneficial for those who want to approach this issue from a people’s perspective. Th e book attempts to bring together the overlapping processes of globalization, global warming and the politics of development. While unfolding the international climate politics on the one hand, the book also tries to look at the political economy of the largest carbon emitting sector in India from close corners. Th e book not only critically examines the effective lack on the part of the developed countries to reorient their policies, pay reparations; but also demonstrates that while pursuing a policy of denial/refusal, a highly questionable ‘solution’ to the global threat is envisaged which is totally in line with new market-based opportunities. It is an endeavour of ours in our quest to deal with some of the open questions we encounter in our social and political life. The views and opinions expressed in this book are those of the authors
