[Book Review] Entangled urbanism : slum, gated community, and shopping mall in Delhi and Gurgaon, by Sanjay Srivastava

Abstract : "Entangled Urbanism" is about what makes a city, in the context of Delhi and its suburban developments. Beyond this minimal outline, how best to summarize the main themes of a book whose author has a taste for Prévert-style inventories while introducing the issues at stake? From the outset, the subtitle of the introduction –“Slums, Criminal Suburbs, Urban Bodies and 'Superb Housing Schemes' for People with 'Modern Outlook'” – provides a sense of the author’s style and range of themes.
