The 2013 Uttarakhand floods, and the many other devastating floods since then, have put the spotlight squarely on human-made factors such as unplanned urbanization, environmental degradation, and rapid industrialization.
This book chronicles some of the most damaging floods of recent times and the trail of destruction they left behind. It casts a detailed eye on the how and why of a fearsome calamity that’s as much human-made as it is natural, with a special focus on the enormous environmental destruction it causes.
