Description

Unravelling the complex history and evolution, socio-economic activities, and rapidly transforming socio-cultural and spatial landscape of Indian cities, this short introduction provides a highly informative yet accessible analysis of the life and future of urban India. Drawing upon the interdisciplinarity of urban studies and cutting-edge research on cities, the book engages with issues of class divide, identity, migration, and quality of life. It not only highlights the organized and planned built environment of urban spaces but also reveals the informal processes of city-building. In doing so, it sheds light on both the visible and not-so-visible changes in organizations and institutions that have an impact on everyday life in the city.
