Becoming Organic: Nature and Agriculture in the Indian Himalaya
Foyalty 135

Becoming Organic: Nature and Agriculture in the Indian Himalaya (Hardback)

£45.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Tracing the social and bureaucratic life of organic quality, this book yields new understandings of this fraught concept. Shaila Seshia Galvin examines certified organic agriculture in India's central Himalayas, revealing how organic is less a material property of land or its produce than a quality produced in discursive, regulatory, and affective registers. Becoming Organic is a nuanced account of development practice in rural India, as it has unfolded through complex relationships forged among state authorities, private corporations, and new agrarian intermediaries.
