Description - The City in South Asia by James Heitzman

The 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.
