Islands in Flux - The Andaman and Nicobar Story

Coming (very) soon...

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, one of the islands’ best known and most consistent chroniclers of contemporary issues, it features information, insight and perspective related to the environment, wildlife conservation, development and the island’s indigenous communities. The book provides an important account that is relevant both for the present and the future of these beautiful and fragile but also very volatile island chain. It is both a map of the region as well as a framework for the way forward, and essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of our world.                                           
Price: Rs. 399

‘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.’
- Darryl D’Monte, Chairman Emeritus of the Forum of Environmental Journalists in India (FEJI)
‘Pankaj Sekhsaria has been visiting, researching, photographing and writing about the
Andaman and Nicobar Islands for decades. Anyone who cares about the magical islands will find this volume to be both highly readable and exceptionally informative.’
- Madhusree Mukerjee, journalist, author and activist
‘Pankaj joined our Andaman and Nicobar Islands Environment Team (ANET) expedition to
remote South Sentinel Island in the late 1990s, and I have a feeling that it was this trip which
started Pankaj’s obsession with these wonderful islands. This collection of nearly twenty years of his writings tells the sometimes disturbing story of how we are treating our fragile islands.’
- Romulus Whitaker , founder, ANET
