This book paints the modern history of Bangalore. It traces the city's rise to metropolitan status and the consequent shaping of urban spaces and citizenship. Complemented by over sixty black and white photographs, old and new, that capture the city's many moments, it highlights the consequences of urban growth that was telescoped into a period of five decades.
