About this product
- DescriptionThe macro-region of South Asia - including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka - today supports one of the world's greatest concentrations of cities, but as James Heitzman argues in the first comprehensive treatment of urban South Asia, this has been the case for at least 5,000 years. With a strong emphasis on the production of space and periodic excursions into literature, art and architecture, religion and public culture, this interdisciplinary study is a valuable text for students and scholars interested in comparative history, urban studies, and the social sciences.
- Author BiographyJames Heitzman is the author of Gifts of Power: Lordship in an Early Indian State and Network City: Planning the Information Society in Bangalore. He currently divides his time between Davis, California and Bangalore, India, where he is co-founder of Nagara, a trust devoted to urban affairs.
