THE ENVIRONMENT AND INDIAN HISTORY

This book is a collection of papers by eminent historians about how environmental change has impacted societies and how people have impacted the environment, both positively and negatively. It is an inter-disciplinary science which calls upon scientists and historians to avoid the mistakes which have caused great hardship in the past. As we are living in times of traumatic climate change, these words of wisdom are an important message.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY – A HISTORY

In 1999-2000, the C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundation organized a series of lectures to trace the important events of the Twentieth Century.  The articles in this book here are a compilation of these lectures.  This is a Madras-centric view which has stepped beyond the limitations of Chennai – that was Madras – and taken a trip around the world.  These are the issues we felt were most important and chose to present.
