I just finished reading Amites Mukhopadhyay’s

 

 

Living with Disasters: Communities and Development in the Indian Sundarbans (Cambridge University Press, 2016). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mukhopadhyay’s study brims with insights into the life and culture of the Sundarbans. Of special interest is the author’s account of the impact of Cyclone Aila, the devastating storm of 2009. This is exactly the kind of ethnography that is required for this era of climate change.
