Description

Beyond its monuments, bureaucracy and pollution, there lies a Delhi which is at once more complex, intriguing and, at times, disturbing. This book is not a history of the capital, but rather an attempt to trace the ever-changing relationships between people, power and place in contemporary urban life. It reveals a city shaped as much by migrants, businessmen, slum dwellers, politicians and conservationists as by architects and rulers.

Bringing together the work of Indian and European academics and activists working in the domains of anthropology, demography, geography, architecture, photography, history and political science, this book would be of interest to anyone keen to move beyond stereotyped representations of India’s capital city.
