The geopolitics of South Asia : from early empires to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh by Graham Chapman( Book )

29 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anyone who is planning on carrying out research in South Asia or indeed anyone who simply wishes to understand more about this cultural heartland should read this book. By studying the main forces which brought about historic, linguistic and economic development, Professor Chapman contends that the lynchpin of this sub-continent's story is a geo-political one."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Environmentalism and the mass media : the North--South divide by Graham Chapman( Book )

15 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mass media in different countries reflects dominant concerns of contemporary societies. Ideas of "environmentalism" are often broad and imprecise, holding neither meaning or currency. This volume discusses the diverse ideas of "environmentalism", the way environmental ideas circulate, and public reaction to environmental concerns conveyed by the media. Drawing on interviews with journalists, media pictures, and public opinion surveys in both UK and India, the authors outline the differing cultural, religious and political contexts against which "world views" form present an interesting picture between North and South. Mass media and communication technology is in danger of locking Northern countries into a ghetto of environmental self-deception thereby perpetuating poverty in the South. The South's goal remains the attainment of development; the North sees "environmental" problems occuring "elsewhere"--In Eastern Europe and developing countries. Whether or not "environmentalism" becomes a universal cause depends on how and to what extent such sharply contrasting world views can converge
Time-scales and environmental change by Thackwray S Driver( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time is an unstated but ever present element in all debates about environmental change - and the subtext of many disagreements. Geomorphologists think in the context of millions of years, politicians in election terms, the media in decades, and the public ceases to worry about global warming with one bad summer. This volume brings together experts from a diverse range of disciplines, to offer a range of both temporal and geographical perspectives. It does not seek to provide clear answers about "right" time-scales, but rather to encourage the reader, from whatever perspective, to think about change and environmental issues in a new light through different time-scales
