Summary
"The Oxford India Short Introductions are concise, stimulating, and accessible guides to different aspects of India. Combining authoritative analysis, new ideas, and diverse perspectives, they discuss subjects which are topical yet enduring, as also emerging areas of study and debate. Capturing the immense importance of India's cities to its economy, polity, and society, this short introduction provides nuanced yet accessible analyses of the evolution and complex socio-economic base of Indian cities, especially in the post-liberalization era. Delving into issues of class divide, identity, migration, and the changing landscapes and social milieu of Indian cities, it charts the future of Indian cities and provides roadmaps to enhancing the quality of life in urban India. Drawing upon the interdisciplinarity of urban studies and cutting-edge research on Indian cities, this book will prove to be a valuable resource for students, scholars, and policymakers as well as general readers looking for a concise overview of urban life in India."--Publisher's website
