✏Habitat of Grace Book Summary : In 1990 the Worldwatch Institute in Washington estimated that humankind had forty years to make the transition to an environmentally stable society. If we have not succeeded by then, it concluded, environmental dterioration and economic decline are likley to be feeding on each other, pulling us into a downward spiral of social disintegration. Worldwatch is no millenarian cult, but a sober and careful organisation whose annual summaries of world affairs have become the planet's unofficial environmental health reports. Its pronouncements are cautiously worded, influential and worth attnedning to. even if the timing is hard to predict. This book uses the issues raised in these reports to look at biology, the envrinomental crisis and theological response to it all by developing a new theology of creation. Based on her scientific background in the bilogical sciences, King brings together biology and theology. It covers sciecne, religion and environment, human nature and develops a theology of creation. The author teaches at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.

✏Habitat Habitation and Health in the Himalayas Book Summary : The present study analyses various facets of Population ecology of the people of Sikkim State and Bharmour Tehsil, Chamba District, Himachal Pradesh to Project some fresh insight into certain areas not yet fully explored, which will eventually lead to a more comprehensive overview of population ecology and its various problems. No study can be completely exhaustive but the present one claims to be a step in that direction.In ecosystems of which human beings, including human settlements, form a part, human cultural components are taken into account. Although culture is a product of human populations and is ineffectual as an ecological force in the absence of such populations, it is neverthless useful to depict culture as a separate set of components of the system. Though it is generally understood that human well-being in a human settlement is essential, it does not have a commonly accept critierion. It may be vague or ambigous and hence elude definition. Well being has physical, mental, ethical, socio-economic, political and ecological dimensions. What constitutes health or welfare or pathology changes according to cultural setting, environmental conditions and ecological relationship.
