              The Memoirs of Jin Luxian: Learning and Relearning, 1916-1982 (Hardback)

              Jin Luxian is considered by many to be one of China's most controversial religious figures. Educated by the Jesuits, he joined the Society of Jesus and was ordained priest in 1945 before continuing his studies in Europe. In 1951 he made the dangerous decision to return to the new...ly established People's Republic of China. He became one of the many thousands of Roman Catholics who suffered persecution. Convicted of counter-revolutionary activities and treason, he was imprisoned for 27 years and only released in 1982. His subsequent decision to accept the government's invitation to resume his prior role as head of the Shanghai Seminary and then assume the title of Bishop of Shanghai without Vatican approval shocked many Catholics. Now, some thirty years later, still serving as Bishop and regarded as one of the leading figures in the Chinese Catholic Church, Jin recounts formative experiences that provide essential insight into the faith and morality that sustained him through the turbulent years of the late 20th Century. In this volume of memoirs Jin recalls his childhood and education, his entry into the Society of Jesus and formation as a priest, his return to China and imprisonment and, finally, his release and return to Shanghai.

              These essays follow the effect of rapidly proliferating and resource-intensive urbanism on everyday environments and their ecological processes within Indian cities. Case studies on nature conservation in the city, urban housing and slum development, waste management, the history... and practice of urban planning, and contestations over the quality of air, water, and sanitation in the major cities of Delhi and Mumbai illuminate urban ecology perspectives at different times thoughout the course of the twentieth century. The volume therefore highlights how struggles over the environment and one's quality of life in urban centers are increasingly framed in terms of their future place in a landscape of global sustainability and the future relationship between cities and changing hinterlands. The text brings both historical particularity and ethnographic nuance to questions of urban ecology in Indian cities, offering novel insights into vital theoretical and practical debates on urbanism and sustainability.
