'Islands in Flux' is a compilation of writings on key issues and developments in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands over the last two decades. Written by Pankaj Sekhsaria, the island’s most consistent chronicler of contemporary issues, it features information, insight and perspective related to the environment, wildlife conservation, development and the island’s indigenous communities. The articles that are included here were first published in some of India’s most prominent publications like The Hindu, Frontline, Sanctuary Asia and the Economic and Political Weekly, and put together provide an important consolidated account that is relevant both for the present and the future of these beautiful and fragile but also very volatile island chain.

'In this update of his earlier book on the Andamans, Sekhsaria demonstrates his unwavering commitment to chronicling the life and times of these beautiful but endangered islands. Few environmental journalists in the country have tracked one area so perceptively. This book is a testimony to his dedication.'
