Sheetal Chhabria's "Making the Modern Slum"

AIPS Member, Sheetal Chhabria's new book "Making the Modern Slum: The Power of Capital in Colonial Bombay" was recently published with UWashington Press Global South Asia Series. "Sheetal locates the origins of Bombay's now-infamous "slum problem" in the broader histories of colonialism and capitalism. She not only challenges assumptions about colonial urbanization and cities in the Global South but also provides a new analytical approach to urban history".
