Penguin India has acquired Sunita Narain's Conflicts of Interest: My Journey through India's Green Movement.
The book is a personal account of India's foremost environmentalist's battles as part of the country's Green Movement.
While outlining the enormous environmental challenges that India faces today, Dr. Sunita Narain will talk about how corporate lobbies and political interests often scuttle their effective resolution.
She will recount some widely reported controversies triggered by research undertaken by her along with her team at the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), such as the pesticides in colas report, air pollution research in Delhi, endosulfan research in Karnataka, among others.
The book includes an 'environmental manifesto' in which Dr. Narain lays out a blueprint for the direction India must take, if it is to deal with the exigencies of climate change and environmental degradation.
