Pati, Biswamoy. “Environment and Social History: Kalahandi, 1800–1950.” Environment and History 5, no. 3 (Oct, 1999): 345–359. doi:10.3197/096734099779568272. This paper examines the social history of Kalahandi in western Orissa over the 1800–1950 period, in an attempt to explore the roots of the famine which haunts the region even today. It delineates the pre-colonial origins of the crisis, and the way Kalahandi’s colonisation reinforced the problems. All rights reserved. © 1999 The White Horse Press
