and Change Discordant Harmonies: A New Ecology for the Twenty-First Century by Daniel B Botkin; Oxford University Press, New York, MAYANK KUMAR The book is a beautiful attempt to make us aware of the present mental conditioning of humanity vis-a-vis the environment. It basically questions our notions and methods to understand nature and its functioning.
