The Way of Life: Studies on Environmental, Social and Cultural Issues

Manis Kumar Raha (Editor) Sarajit Kumar Chatterjee (Editor) Palash Chandra Coomar (Editor)

In this book we have included a total of eighteen articles we have distributed these articles in three parts. Part one includes four articles on environment forest and forest movements while part two includes seven articles on different social issues. Part three covers of remaining seven articles cultural issues. These eighteen articles show varied aspects of human environment society and culture. Though there are innumerable variations but we have tried to show only a few of these traits. Human culture as also human environment are dynamic in nature. Therefore the same are always subjected to change. What were there in the past may not be the same in the present and what are in the present may not be found in the future. We firmly believe that the articles which we have included in this book, will be able to satisfy a large number of readers who include social scientists academicians and scholars planners and administrators and also common readers.
