Current policy or scholarly literature on sustainable development in India has been missing a vital interdisciplinary integrated link covering four areas of knowledge: law, economics, science, and politics. This gap has contributed to an incomplete understanding of the whole issue and, in turn, has added resulted in inappropriate and often unrealistic instruments being used to achieve the lofty ideals of sustainable development. This edited volume brings together a scholarly analysis of interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives to the sustainable development agenda and debates in India. The theoretical and empirical analyses conducted by the contributors create more questions than answers, yet an integrated whole emerging shows the future directions which will shape the policy and theoretical debates on sustainable development.
