2 Birds & People

Mark Cocker

Random House, New Delhi, India, 2013, 0224081748 / 9780224081740, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 22.5 x 29 Cm David Tipling 
There are 10,500 species of bird worldwide and wherever they occur people marvel at their glorious colors and their beautiful songs. We also trap and consume birds of every kind. Yet birds have not just been good to eat. Their feathers, which keep us warm or adorn our costumes, give birds unique mastery over the heavens. Throughout history their flight has inspired the human imagination so that birds are embedded in our religions, folklore, music and arts. Vast in both scope and scale, Birds and People explores and celebrates this relationship and draws upon Mark Cockers 40 years of observing and thinking about birds. Part natural history and part cultural study, it describes and maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment. In the end, this is a book as much about us as it is about birds. Birds and People has been stunningly illustrated by one of Europes best wildlife photographers, David Tipling, who has travelled in 39 countries on seven continents to produce a breathtaking and unique collection of photographs. The book is as important for its visual riches as it is for its groundbreaking content. Birds and People is also exceptional in that the author has solicited contributions from people worldwide. Personal anecdotes and stories have come from more than 650 individuals in 81 different countries. They range from university academics to Mongolian eagle hunters and from Amerindian shamans to some of the most celebrated writers of our age. The sheer multitude of voices in this global chorus means that Birds and People is both a source book on why we cherish birds and a powerful testament to their importance for all humanity.

3 Conservation at the Crossroads: Science, Society, and the Future of India's Wildlife

Ghazala Shahabuddin

Permanent Black, New Delhi, India, 2010, 81-7824-264-8 / 9788178242644, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The author argues that a broad-based participatory India faces an ecological crisis of massive proportions. The overexploitation of the country’s forests and wetlands is eating away at vital ecological processes. Rapid and unplanned economic development threatens to fragment and devour the wildlife habitats that remain. Plant and animal species are joining the ranks of the critically endangered at faster rates than ever before. Using the Sariska Tiger Reserve as one of its major anchors, this book analyses the historical, socio-political, and biological contexts of nature conservation in the country in an effort to identify the malaise underlying India’s dominant conservation paradigm, which is primarily one of top-down control and exclusion. It then surveys alternative approaches to conservation—emerging in India and elsewhere—which attempt to reconcile social equity with biodiversity goals. approach to conservation, accommodating both use-based and preservationist paradigms, is necessary if we are to see India’s extraordinary wildlife survive into the next century. Environmental justice and improved governance have to be as much a part of this agenda as sound ecological science and practice. Printed Pages: 288. 032740

32 Fishes of India

B.F. Chhapgar

World Wildlife Fund in association with Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2008, 019568799X / 9780195687996, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Did you know that suckerfish can attach themselves onto other fishes to get a free ride? Or that the markings on the young Koran fish resemble the sacred inscriptions of the Koran? How some sharks give birth to their young rather than lay eggs, and how anglerfish actually stalk their prey with their stub-like fins and then ‘bait?like fishermen! Fishes of India introduces us to the little known world of fishes, both fresh water and marine, found in India. Over 130 varieties are described in detail through numerous line drawings and photographs. A colour section on fishes gives us an unusual insight into their natural habitat. Sections on the uses of fish, a glossary, and a list of the common, scientific, and vernacular names of fishes provide additional information for interested readers. 024437

33 Gods in Chains

Rhea Ghosh

Foundation Books, New Delhi, India, 8175962852 / 9788175962859, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The book hopes to highlight the conditions of captive elephants, as they are currently used and kept in India. Initially started as an informal documentation, Gods in Chains later expanded to become a ‘handbook of sorts? for anyone wanting to know more of the reality behind the veil of glamour and majesty of the captive pachyderm, especially in temple rituals and festival processions. The often troubled and complex relationship with their only companion, the ‘mahout? is also a story of pathos and heartbreak for a deeply social and community-minded animal. Key features * This book hopes to open a chapter in the process of devising and implementing better management and welfare practices for captive elephants. * It is an easy guide for students, policymakers, animal welfarists, beaurocrats and every individual who would like to make a difference in the lives of these great wild creatures, with whom humans have forged a deep and abiding relationship. * This book was commissioned by the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre (WRRC) and Compassion Unlimited Plus Action (CUPA) in an attempt to encapsulate the ‘living and training conditions of captive elephants? It offers an insight into the inherent problems of the existing system. The WRRC is an Indian wildlife conservation group and CUPA is an animal welfare charity, both located in Bangalore, Karnataka. * The book has given various practical recommendations that need to be strictly implemented by all the agencies if this goal is to be achieved. The WRRC’s dream would be to assist the Government in the formation of an elephant sanctuary someday, where these magnificent animals could roam in protected areas set aside for them.

34 Man-eaters of Kumaon

Jim Corbett

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2003, 0-19-562255-3 / 9780195622553, Twenty-sixth Impression, Paperback, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
'Part of the power of Corbett's writing lies in the ... maddening faithfulness with which he recalls and recreates the smallest details of his hunts ... The result is the kind of suspense that a professional writer ... could not easily create.'--Geoffrey C. Ward & Diane Raines Ward in Tiger-wallahs '[Corbett] has written with rich insight and deep intimacy about the wild animals of the forest ... When Man-Eaters of Kumaon was published, the book became a worldwide best-seller, was translated into a dozen languages, and even [made into] a Hollywood film.' --Ramachandra Guha in Lives in the Wilderness '...a certifiable classic ... the stories are gripping without being melodramatic ...[they] do not appear worn or dated today. Corbett was an exceptionally good writer, clear and lucid and [his] tales were ...extraordinary.' --The Hindu 'Jim Corbett as a person remains as elusive in [these]pages as the leopards and tigers he tracked down...He left a large place in his heart not only f or the denize Jim Corbett's books on man-eating tigers are not only established classics, but also almost in a separate literary category by themselves. Man-Eaters of Kumaon is the best known of Colonel Corbett's books, and contains ten fascinating stories of tracking and shooting man-eaters in the Indian Himalayas during the early years of the last century. The stories also contain incidental information on flora, fauna, and village life, making this book altogether delightful reading. Printed Pages: 228. 024468

Hunter, naturalist, and conservationist, Jim Corbett is famous for slaying man-eating tigers and leopards in the Kumaon region of northern India. Frequently appealed to by the government of the United Provinces during the 1920s and the 1930s for help, Corbett is known to have shot nineteen tigers and fourteen leopards - all man-eaters. Corbett was encouraged to write about his hunting experiences by Roy E. Hawkins, manager of the Indian Branch of the Oxford University Press and a personal friend. An integral part of OUP India's centenary celebrations, this volume includes Jim Corbett's unpublished writings on man-eaters, nature, and his beloved Kumaon, personal letters, articles written for newspapers and gazettes by his contemporaries, and letters exchanged between Corbett and his publisher showcasing the development of his bestselling books - all from the archives of the Oxford University Press. It highlights Corbett's engagement with the times in which he lived, his complete empathy with the people of Kumaon, his great understanding of tigers and leopards, and also the gradual development of his ideas about conservation and the need to preserve the tiger and its habitat. Chronicling the history of his bestselling books (Man-Eaters of Kumaon, The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, and My India) and supported by rare photographs and evocative line drawings, this volume reflects the evolution of his writing as well as his long relationship with the Press. Key Features Jim Corbett, bestselling author of tiger stories and well-known hunter, naturalist, and conservationist.

44 The Illustrated Salim Ali: The Fall of a Sparrow

Salim Ali

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0195687477 / 9780195687477, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The Fall of a Sparrow tells the real life story of adventure and self-discovery of Sálim Ali, India’s original bird man. Chronicling an era gone by and vividly describing forgotten landscapes, this engaging tale describes how a childhood curiosity for nature and an intrepid adventuring spirit led to an unusual career choice. Eighty-seven at the time of writing and an internationally renowned figure, Ali vividly describes his childhood adventures in the wild and subsequent expeditions to almost every part of the Indian subcontinent. The birdwatching stories are interspersed with lively details of family life and youthful adventuring. The more than 100 visuals—comprising photographs, line drawings, and paintings of birds by past masters like G.M. Henry, J.P. Irani, and C.J.F. Coombs—are an unusual feature of this adapted edition. These paintings were originally prepared for the ten-volume Handbook of the Birds of India and Pakistan (OUP, 1971) which continues to be in print even today. The colour plate section, featuring some of these paintings in their original avatar, makes this illustrated edition a delight both for young readers and for collectors. 027229

48 The Second Jim Corbett Omnibus: Comprising My India, Jungle Lore, and Tree Tops

'I am glad I did re-read the book, for few books stand up so well to the passage of time.' --David Davidar, The Hindu '... the book is a delight, with its descriptions in minute and often credible detail of the way of birds, reptiles and animals, and how to observe and interpret the sights, sounds and smells of the jungle ... We may be thankful to [Corbett] for sharing a little of it with us, and for allowing us to accompany him on his expeditions...' --Janet Rizvi, Indian Express Jim Corbett is world famous for his classic man-eater stories. However, the three volumes collected here show a very different side to this remarkable man. In My India, he describes the villages of the Kumaon Hills, and the customs and lifestyles of the people he encountered. Jungle Lore is the closest Corbett ever came to writing an autobiography, combining recollections of his earliest days with frank views on the need for conservation which were well ahead of their time. Finally, in Tree Tops, the only book Corbett set outside his beloved India, he captures the savage beauty of Kenya's wildlife as well as telling the story of the royal visit of 1952, during which Princess Elizabeth learned she was Queen. Printed Pages: 224 with line drawings and a map. 027904

49 The Second Oxford India Illustrated Corbett

Jim Corbett

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0195684281 / 9780195684285, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The Second Oxford India Illustrated Corbett is another collection of Corbett’s best-loved writings complemented by gripping illustrations. Whether lovingly sketching life in a Himalayan village as in ‘The Queen of the Village?and ‘Kunwar Singh? or describing the dense Indian jungles and teeming wildlife of his days in Jungle Lore, or telling the story, tinged with regret, of the hunting of the beautiful Pipal Pani Tiger, the stories reflect Corbett’s involvement with India, her people and her flora and fauna. With ‘The Talla Des Man-eater?and ‘The Man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag?we enter vintage Corbett territory—tightly paced and nail-biting accounts of hunting man-eaters in the hills of Kumaon and Garhwal. The entire collection, with its rich visuals and riveting tales, will appeal to young readers, and Corbett admirers alike. However, some stories have been chosen particularly for our younger readers. ‘Robin?is a poignant story of Corbett’s favourite hunting dog; ‘Sultana?is an appealing tale of an Indian Robin Hood; and ‘The Muktesar Man-eater?is a touching account of Corbett’s satisfaction at ‘having made a small portion of the earth safe for a brave little girl to walk on? 033179
