NEO DELHI AND THE POLITICS
OF POSTCOLONIAL URBANISM
'Neo Delhi and the Politics of Postcolonial Urbanism' challenges the prevailing metro-centric view of globalization found in urban studies. Rather than privileging the experiences of cities and urban regions in the industrialized world, it argues that cities in the so-called ‘developing’ world present opportunities for scholars to re-think entrenched ideas of globalization, urban development and political community. Kalyan presents a trans-disciplinary exploration of the manifold possibilities and challenges that confront a ‘globalizing’ megacity like New Delhi.
