WorldAlthough its narrative is lyrical and heartfelt, the book is also an ode to sciencegood science that respects natural processes rather than seeking to subjugate themSubramanian, whose fluid writing has appeared in everything from the journal Nature to The Wall Street Journal, shows a rare gift in her ability to combine personal but uncontrived field reporting with the cultural sensitivity of a returning daughter of India and the critical faculties of someone confident in the science New Scientist Meera Subramanians A River Runs Again tells five tales of India at the crossroads a filigree of cautionary and celebratory stories voiced with dignified passionSubramanian navigates these rough waters between baneful emergencies and precarious signs of enlightened

environmental future the planet faces Very few people are qualified to tell the story with as much clarity, compassion, and character driven power as Meera Subramanian Bill McKibben, author of Oil and Honey The Education of an Unlikely ActivistThis is investigative journalism as story fact filled but optimistic, rueful and inviting The author writes with warm intelligence, and she challenges readers In each chapter, as well, Subramanian offers specific antidotes as anecdotes, narrating in a measured, conversational, welcoming voice Each of the stories is comprehensive while nimble, as

inquiry into twenty first century India BooklistBy embedding numerous facts and data about Indias inhabitants into her engrossing narrative, Subramanian has created a work that belongs in all environmental collections Library JournalAn elegiac account of Indias struggles to cope with, or even reverse, the devastating effects of too many people living on too little land in a country where the poor still far outnumber the rich The problems are overwhelming and intransigent, but the human spirit shines through in attempts to set right the ways of heedless modernization This is a book
