       nature, and race in colonial India." 
520 8  Annotation|bScience was a central pillar of colonialism, 
       but the converse holds true as well: colonialism 
       profoundly shaped the character of nineteenth-century 
       science. Civilizing Natures unravels unexpected 
       relationships between science, technology, and 
       administrative systems in colonial India from the 1850s to
       the 1930s, deepening our perspective on continuing 
       conflicts over race, resources, and empire. Botanists, 
       anthropologists, and foresters had their most important 
       sources of data-nature and natives-located at colonial 
       sites. In the hilly, forested regions of Madras Presidency,
       tribal populations were studied by ethnographers, managed 
       by revenue officials, recruited by plantation contractors,
       and modernized by missionaries. Racial constructions of 
       nature and modernity helped criminalize and domesticate 
       unruly natives. This is a story about the construction of 
       nature in southern India that is deeply local and 
       irreducibly global. Through detailed case studies, Kavita 
       Philip shows how race and nature are fundamental, to 
       understanding colonial modernities. Through its insightful
       combination of methodologies from both the humanities and 
       the social sciences, Civilizing Natures complicates our 
       understandings of the relationships between science and 
       religion, pre-modern and civilized, environment and
