Routledge Series on Urban South Asia

Series Editor: Henrike Donner

As South Asia provides some of the most rapid urban growth globally, this series presents innovative studies on the on-going transformations associated with contemporary urbanization in the region. The books included provide detailed insights into the transformations South Asian societies are undergoing, and specifically link macro-level studies of urban change with detailed analyses of urbanity and sub-cultures. With its focus on urban life, subculture and processes of urbanisation in a variety of contexts, including recently urbanising spaces beyond the metropolis, the series highlights original research based on empirical data. The importance of the series lies in its broad understanding of urbanization and as such it includes research from a variety of disciplines with a focus on contemporary perspectives.
