AbstractThis is an in depth case study looking at the transnational involvement in the construction of a large dam on the Narmada river in India. The controversy, which begun with the first proposals for the dam in the late 1940's took on transnational aspects as critics took up the cause of communities who would be displaced as the reservoirs created by the damns filled up and raised environmental concerns about the environmental impact of the project.  This case study, meant for use in a classroom setting, includes a chronology of events, major readings on the details fo the case, and materials for instructors.
