Abstract

The AA. consider what happened to a tribal villager in Ranchi District, Jharkhand when he sought permission to cut down 10 jack trees on his private land. It is a tale not just of corruption and delays, but also of colluding interests across the state-community divide. They consider how this system has changed, and how the price of jackfruit increased, when trade in this timber was deregulated in the 1990s. These tales are revisited in considering what they might tell us about some of the claims that have surfaced in the new environmental history
