By Arun Agrawal

He visited approximately 40 villages in Kumaon, the place he assessed the kingdom of village forests, interviewed hundreds of thousands of Kumaonis, and tested neighborhood files. Drawing on his wide fieldwork and archival study, he indicates how decentralization concepts switch relatives among states and localities, group choice makers and customary citizens, and contributors and the surroundings. In exploring those adjustments and their value, Agrawal establishes that theories of environmental politics are enriched through cognizance to the interconnections among strength, wisdom, associations, and subjectivities.

2o For a method of management that depended on extreme s~plification of the landscape, this was a major hindrance. Second, even for the more important species in India forests, there was little or no available information about age, growth rates, and valuation. And, third, although British India had been fortunate all through the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in gaining from the knowledge of many noted natural historians, there were few trained foresters who could realize the new vision of forests.
34 The district collector of Malabar, Mr. Connolly, initiated the Nilumbur teak plantations in 1842. 35 To guide forestry practice, Connolly specified seven types of rules which resembled some of the prescrip- tions for protection that Brandis was to create in Burma a decade later. These rules addressed issues of planting, inventory, felling, contractual arrangements, monitoring, enforcement, and personnel. 36 Chatter Menon, a "native," served as the subconservator of the plantations until his death in 1862.
The rules established state ownership over forests in the name of conservation and portrayed the forest department as the appropriate agency to implement the rules. Fourteen of these rules regulated behavior with respect to teak. Girdling and felling, cutting or breaking off branches, injuries to seedlings and smaller trees in the process of removing felled timber, fires and clearing of vegetation for toungya (shifting cultivation), construction within designated boundaries of forests, methods of obtaining timber for private subsistence use, and procedures for removal of stumps and branches-all of these activities were regulated most strictly where teak was concerned (Stebbing 192 2- 26 : 373-7 6 ).
