TOC: New Edited Book titled "The Bangladesh Environmental Humanities Reader: Environmental Justice, Development Victimhood and Resistance "

The Bangladesh Environmental Humanities Reader: Environmental Justice, Development Victimhood and Resistance analyzes Bangladesh's human-nature/environment relationships in terms of development victimhood, environmental injustices, and the resistance of the marginalized. It demonstrates how the popular GDP-based economic growth model helps governments undertake 'development' projects, threatening the environment and livelihood of the poor while benefitting the affluent.
