about this item

This book challenges the prevailing metro-centric view of globalization. Cities are a crucial part of the infrastructure of globalization, yet in the so-called "developing" world, cities have largely been excluded as "structurally irrelevant" to the functioning of the global urban economy. Kalyan presents a trans-disciplinary exploration of the manifold possibilities and challenges that confront a ‘globalizing’ megacity like New Delhi.

Combining theoretical scholarship, ethnographic exploration, archival research and textual and visual analysis, the book foregrounds complex urban dynamics in and around the region and raises critical questions about changing urban life for postcolonial cities across the Global South. Kalyan employs methodological approaches from political economy, urban studies and visual culture to render a vivid portrait of changing urban life in India’s largest conurbation,

The book will be of interest to students and scholars of urban studies, postcolonial studies, and inter-disciplinary studies.
