Bombay and Mumbai: The City in Transition
Bombay and Mumbai: The City in Transition
Description
About the Book:

This volume, third in the series on Bombay or Mumbai, brings together essays that treat the renaming of the city as a point of departure in visiting enduring themes in the city's life. The essays offer exhilarating and provocative insights on what Bombay has become, as it steps into the new millennium. Among other themes, the volume inquires whether the city has managed to retain its identity or if it has lost it like any other large metropolis. This volume will be useful to sociologists, historians, urban theorists, political scientists, and culturalists, in addition to activists and journalists.

About the Author:

Sujata Patel is Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Pune and co-editor (with Alice Thorner) of Bombay: Metaphor for Modern India and Bombay: Mosaic of Modern Culture; Jim Masselos is Honorary Reader in History at the University of Sydney.

Excerpts from Review:

'Here comes a book which mirrors the face of the city'.

-Indian Express

'The book is commendable for the information and provocative analysis it offers. There's mine of information here for anyone willing to delve deep.'

-Sunday Mid-Day

'The book is rich and rewarding, a splendid accomplishment.'

-Nigel Harris, Economic and Political Weekly

'This volume, characteristically ably edited is packed with all kinds of information and issues ... and set with admirable pointedness.'

-Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Hindu

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
