Resources of Our Earth: An Introduction to Spatial Economics (Volume I & II)

S. Datta (Author)
Synopsis Studies and researches have witnessed an increasing trend of fusion of subjects and inter disciplinary in character, particularly in sciences--physical, life and social. This book is also multi disciplinary in nature with resource study as its cornerstone comprising resource theory, aspects--natural, human and cultural, its development and utilization, resource adequacy and depletion, environment pollution and degradation to ecology and eco-system. This subject may properly be designated as geonomics, or, more appropriately, spatial economics. It would be of help to students of geography, economics and commerce. It would also be of interest to the researchers in the related disciplines, and to general readers interested in the economics of human destiny in relation to geo-reality. Economic activities originally tied directly to nature have gradually traveled away from nature with increasing sophistication and advancement of civilization. This book emphasizes that economic activities of man are related to geo-realities but increasingly so distantly as to obliterate the traces. Modem service sectors, say information and software technology even can be conceived of having relevance to geo-reality, at least conceptually. In the changing world with revolutionary advancement of technology, the cultural superstructure is conceived as a building without a plinth, for a man looking below from the 121 floor. An obsession with technology and consumerism is more than apparent. At this juncture, it is essential to remind the human species to look to the geo-reality as the basis of their existence, and that, infact man is a part of nature itself in a way. We have enough of niceties of theoretical economics; economic research should presently be directed towards relating economic activities to geo-realities and this book is an attempt in that direction.

He underwent an orientation course as Academic Councillor in the Eastern regional Centre in Calcutta of the Indira Gandhi national Open University in 1991 and has been continuing since then in that capacity (Counseling in postgraduate level). He emulates the spirit, (in his opinion, as a humble student), of Marxism that has imbibed in his think –reservoir an outlook of treating Social Science – and explaining social phenomena – in its totality embracing Political Economy, Political Philosophy, History and Sociology, and More importantly, from the standpoint of a [particular philosophy, while expressing his position in regard to the same in the words of karl Marx himself, “All I Know is that I am not a Marxist” in the same sense as the great philosopher, obviously with far greater humility. On Philosophical plane, the author is an existentialist in individual life. He considers human freedom as sacrosanct above everything else. To him, the extent of freedom enjoyed by the people of a society is the index of development and cultural advancement; the denial of freedom to himself and/or others is the most immoral act perpetrated by man.
