Divided into three parts dealing with environmental crisis and its cause, understanding the crisis, and possible remedial measures, the book provides a balanced understanding of the major issues and concerns related to the environment, both locally in India and globally. From threatened ecosystems, disappearing forests, and endangered species to depleting natural resources, escalating pollution, growing population, and dangerous toxins-the book addresses the major environmental crises confronting us today. Using environment-related stories and real-life cases from the Indian and global contexts, the book illustrates the various problems we encounter in our daily lives, provides possible solutions, and recounts successes and failures. The evocative line drawings and sketches complementing the text often present self-complete stories in themselves.

The appendices on further reading (books, magazines, and websites), resources (organizations, etc.), interesting trivia, and a glossary of terms are a special feature of the volume. Aiming to generate increased sensitivity among readers towards environmental issues, it tries to inculcate in us an appreciation of the seriousness of the environmental crisis at the local and global levels.
