Indian World Geography Majid Hussain.

Preface to the Fourth Edition
Published first in 2011, and written mainly for the candidates preparing for the Indian Administrtive Services (IAS), the book ‘Indian and World Geography’ has become increasingly popular within a short period of time. I have received numerous letters of appreciation from the aspirants of IAS, postgraduate students of Geography and the faculty members from the
different universities of India and abroad. Some constructive suggestions have also been received to update the book to make it even more relevant and useful.
Nothing changes faster than the economic, demographic and population data. In the light of the suggestions made by the readers, I have updated the statistics and provided latest information about economic, population and biodiversity, major biomes, biosphere reserves, national parks, sanctuaries, environment degradation and conservation. In addition to these, I have also strengthened the chapters on globalisation, land reforms in India, watershed management, Indian agriculture, agricultural practices, geography of crops cropping patterns, rotation of crops, and marketing of agricultural products in
India. The cartography of some the maps has also been improved.
In fact, the present volume gives a quick access to fascinating and wide ranging topics about the physical and cultural geography of India and the world. Written in a clear and simple style, I have maintained the principles of clarity, lucidity and brevity throughout the book. It is hoped that the book will be of immense help to not only the students of Geography optional but also for them who are searching for reliable material for the General Studies (Prelims and Mains) of the UPSC examination.
I am indebted to McGraw Hill Education, especially Mr. Tanmoy Roychowdhury (GM), Ms. Shukti Mukherjee (Senior Manager, ProductnDevelopment), Ms. Bhavna Malhotra (Manager, Product Development), Ms. Gargi Bhattacharya (Senior Specialist, Product Development) and Ms. Medha Sharma (Assistant Manager, Production) for their dedication and commitment to produce the book meticulously in a short period of time.
