While the problems of low level of economic development, grinding poverty and environmental degredation are widespread throughout the developing world, few regions have taken a more severe toll than South Asia. The absence of a plural and open political system compounds the problems of overall socio-economic development. This book uses case studies to analyze different aspects of the economics-environment nexus.
The chapters in this edited volume present multi-disciplinary case studies of prehistoric archaeological sites located on now-submerged portions of the continental shelf. Each chapter represents an extension of the known prehistoric record beyond the modern shoreline. Case studies represent central themes of landscape change, climate change and societal development, using new technologies for mapping, monitoring and managing these sites.
