Why should one read these essays? perhaps GK (the way Gopal Krishan is fondly addressed by his students) would have raised this very question to himeself. That is the style of the person to pose innocent questions like an amateur researcher. Responding to trends in Indian Geography and at times predicting future, these essays represent his academic evolution often treading an untrodden path. Weaving a tapestry of writing around the three themes of Geography, Development and Public Policy, the writings address various disciplinary and cross-disciplinary constituencies. These are distinguished by clarity of thought, coherent organisation of subject matter and effective way of communication. Organised by the editors into five units, these essays follow a natural flow of themes in sequence. An editorial introduction prefaces each unit while a prologue introduces the entire compilation. Intellectually stimulating and addressing several pertinent issues, the book should be of immense interest to academia at large, research minds in social sciences, policy makers in general and students of geography in specific.
