The ecological challenges we face today have strong political, economic, and religious underpinnings. Be it the neoliberal policies of the state or the monolithic development projects of multinational corporations, Mother Earth and the people who depend on natural resources for their survival suffer as a result. In her new book Uncivil City: Ecology, Equity, and the Commons in Delhi (Sage 2020), Amita Baviskar exposes how authoritarian governments interweave political totalitarianism, cultural fascism, and a neo- capitalist agenda to displace and even equate common people in urban city spaces in India, especially in Delhi, to polluted spaces or bodies in the name of "green city-clean city" projects.
