The Last Panda - Taschenbuch

2012, ISBN: 9780226736280

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 926338888

2012. Hardcover. New. Why Reservation for MuslimThere is a wide range of variations in the conditions of Muslims across the country but one thing is certain that Muslims as a whole exhibit the perceived discrimination and deprivation practically in every segment. The Sachhar Committee Report and the Misra Commission findings too have revealed that Muslims are economically, educationally, socially and culturally, a miserable lot. In many respects they are worse than scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. They are under siege due to lack of education, shrinking political space, deprivation and frustration. They are at the lowest pedestal of the society and need affirmative actions to bring them within the national milieu.A debate is going on throughout the country to uplift the conditions of Muslims through affirmative measures, however due to lack of authentic material of the subject, the government as well as the political parties and the meaningful people are finding it difficult to evolve an appropriate strategy.Misra Commission has suggested welfare measures for the development of weaker sections of Muslims including reservation in educational institutions and employment in government sectors on the pattern of SCs/STs and backward classes. It has also chalked out the modalities for the implementation of its recommendations within the frame work of Indian Constitution. However, there is a sense of despair among Muslims pertaining to the implementation of Misra commission report because they have seen the fate of Sachhar committee report.It is a golden opportunity for the government to show its strong will and compassion for the Muslims by bailing them out from the morass in which they have been dragging for several decades. The implementation of Misra commission recommendations with earnestness and urgency they deserve will not only benefit Muslim community but would enhance India's prestige as a secular democracy and reflect upon the large-hearted tolerance of Indian society and would go a along way in enriching the age-old pluralistic culture of the country.

For thousands of years, the majestic elephant has roamed the African continent, as beloved by man as it has been preyed upon. But centuries of exploitation and ivory hunting have taken their toll: now, as wars and poachers continue to ravage its habitat, as disease and political strife deflect attention from its plight, the African elephant faces imminent extinction. What will become of these magnificent beasts? As the elephant's future looms ever darker, Martin Meredith's concise and richly illustrated biography traces the elephant's history from the first ivory expeditions of the Egyptian pharaohs 2500 years ago to today, exploring along the way the indelible imprint the African elephant has made in art, literature, culture, and society. He shares recent extraordinary discoveries about the elephant's sophisticated family and community structure and reveals the remarkable ways in which elephants show compassion and loyalty to each other. Elegant, illuminating, and urgent, Elephant Destiny offers a beautiful and important tribute to one of earth's most magisterial creatures at the very moment it threatens to vanish from being.. Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Public Affairs, 2004, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.: Univ of Chicago Pr, 1993 Near-new condition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. 292 pages. Illustrated throughout. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo, hunted mercilessly for its pelt, and hostage to profiteering schemes once in captivity, the panda is on the brink of extinction. Here, acclaimed naturalist George Schaller uses his great evocative powers, and the insight gained by four and a half years in the forests of the Wolong and Tangjiahe panda reserves, to document the plight of these mysterious creatures and to awaken the human compassion urgently needed to save them. "No scientist is better at letting the rest of us in on just how the natural world works; no poet sees the world with greater clarity or writes about it with more grace. . . . Anyone who genuinely cares for wildlife cannot help being grateful to Schaller both for his efforts to understand the panda and for the candor with which he reports what has gone so badly wrong in the struggle to save it from extinction."Geoffrey C. Ward, New York Times Book Review "Schaller's book is a unique mix of natural history and the politics of conservation, and it makes for compelling reading. . . . Having been in giant panda country myself, I found some of the descriptions of the animals and habitats breathtaking. Schaller describes the daily routines and personalities of the giant pandas he studied (as well as their fates thereafter) as though they were his blood relatives. . . . Schaller's brilliant presentation of the complexities of conservation makes his book a milestone for the conservation movement."Devra G. Kleiman, Washington Post Book World "George Schaller's most soulful work, written in journal style with many asides about a creature who evolved only two to three million years ago (about the same time as humans). . . . Here, conservation biology confronts an evil that grinds against hope and shatters the planet's diversity. Written with hope."Whole Earth Catalog "A nicely crafted blend of wildlife observation and political-cultural analysis. . . . The Last Panda is a sad chronicle of our failure, so far, to stem the decline of the animal that may be the most beloved on the planet."Donald Dale Jackson, Smithsonian. Hard Cover. Fine/Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Univ of Chicago Pr, 1993

Today only about 1,000 giant pandas survive in the wild. Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo on the one hand, and threatened by human greed and indifference on the other, the panda is at extreme risk. As recently reported in Time, a live panda can bring $112,000 on the Chinese black market. In Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan, black marketeers charge buyers $10,000 or more for a panda pelt. At the same time, Western zoos pay millions to rent the ever-popular pandas for exhibit. Because the panda has becom Today only about 1,000 giant pandas survive in the wild.

As recently reported in Time, a live panda can bring $112,000 on the Chinese black market. In Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan, black marketeers charge buyers $10,000 or more for a panda pelt. At the same time, Western zoos pay millions to rent the ever-popular pandas for exhibit. Because the panda has become a lucrative commodity, protecting it in the wild seems a near impossible task. George Schaller and his Chinese colleagues were the first to make a detailed study of pandas in the wild. This book recounts their groundbreaking research on the panda in its dwindling native habitat and in the midst of political problems as troubling as any natural threat. Schaller forces us to confront the question: Can this extraordinary creature, survivor of countless threats from nature, survive its own popularity? In 1980, Schaller went into the mountains of Sichuan province to study the panda - a species considered a national treasure in China - on behalf of the Chinese government and the World Wildlife Fund. For over four and a half years, he and his wife, Kay, lived in the forests of the Wolong panda reserve, monitoring the lives of the pandas, recording their travels, fights, courtships, and deaths. In fog and rain and snow, over steep mountains, they tracked not only pandas but also such rare creatures as golden monkeys, red pandas, and takins. This is the story of the Schallers' remarkable journey - told with the evocative power that is George Schaller's gift. But The Last Panda is more thansuperb natural history. It is a frank, disturbing account of good intentions gone dangerously wrong; of pandas left unprotected from poaching; of deadly traps set by poor villagers hunting within nature preserves; of the greed that drives the rent-a-panda programs; of simple, [PU: University of Chicago Press]
