Editorial Reviews


"...pleasingly written and indisputably the single best text on the Ganges and its history." - The Wall Street Journal
"Sudipta Sen's Ganges:The Many Pasts of an Indian River invites its reader across the space and time of this iconic riverscape. Through a sweeping yet carefully textured history, the layers of the Ganges's past assume a life that is both consequential and contemporary... Ganges is neither social nor environmental history; it is inseparably both... an invitation to think about all environmental history not only as a story of a changing natural world but also as a story about ourselves." - Science
" all-encompassing history of the river, its ecologies and the people who have lived alongside it for millenniums... Sen shows how it has played an integral role in shaping the geography, economy and spiritual life of civilization..." - Los Angeles Times
"...engrossing and challenging...a glittering current of impressions and eras, a book very much meeting Sen's own description of the goddess Ganga herself: part human, part water."―The Christian Science Monitor
"...masterful and encyclopaedic..."―Geographical (Magazine of the Royal Geographical Society)

About the Author
