This is a study of the conflict beween France and Germany over the Saar. "It was not a question of a diffeence of opinion affecting a few kilometres of frontier or a small area of territory, but of a conflict in which interests, principles, and feelings were inextricably mixed and which at times aroused passions far exceeding the problem at issue. It was not only the mines and industrial equipment of the Saar that were in question but the problem of the balance of relative strength and of the principle of self-determination of peoples. There were also questions of prestige. The governments concerned entered the conflict in such a way as to make retreat difficult. Finally, the long period of mistrust between the two peoples complicated and thus delayed a settlement of the Saar question and this, in turn, had repercussions on Franco-German relations.

Synopsis: The Chipko movement emerged in the early 1970s in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalayas. In attempting to draw attention to the difficulty of sustaining their livelihoods in the region, local communities engaged in protests by hugging trees that were marked for felling in state-owned commercial forests. As the story of these protests spread across India and the globe, Chipko was embraced worldwide by ecologists, ecofeminists, policy makers and academics. Ironically, as the legend grew, Chipko's story became increasingly disconnected from the realities that gave rise to the protests. Chipko now exists as a myth, tenuously linked to an imagined space of the Himalayas that represents the timeless realm of pristine nature and simple peasant life - the terrain that escapes history. Or, in the more prosaic language of policy makers, it is one of the several 'disturbances' to have emerged from a mountainous region that has, since the late 1800s, been characterised as 'backward' or 'isolated'. This book brings the Chipko movement back from the realm of myth into the world of geographical history.It traces the modes of administration and policy intervention in the region through the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial phases, and reveals how its biogeography has been shaped by varying struggles over resources, livelihoods and autonomy. Chipko, when seen in the context of its geographical history, shows that the question of sustainability in Garhwal, or in any other 'backward' or 'pristine' realm of the world, hinges more on an understanding of substantive democratic processes than on the need to make heroes or villains of those who participate in activist movements. . 1st Published by Verso: 2000.
