Borderland City in New India. Frontier to Gateway
bookposted on 20.02.2019 by Duncan McDuie-Ra
Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
While India has been a popular subject of scholarly analysis in the past decade, the majority of that attention has been focused on its major cities. This volume instead explores contemporary urban life in a smaller city located in India's Northeast borderland at a time of dramatic change, showing how this city has been profoundly affected by armed conflict, militarism, displacement, interethnic tensions, and the expansion of neoliberal capitalism.
