Colonizing, Decolonizing, and Globalizing Kolkata
Colonizing, Decolonizing, and Globalizing Kolkata offers an extended analysis of the architecture of Kolkata from the earliest days of colonialism through independence and on into the twenty-first century, all set in the larger context of Indian cities and architecture. What Siddhartha Sen shows is the transformation of a colonial city into a Marxist one-and ongoing attempts to further transform it into a global city. Richly illustrated, the book carefully situates architecture, design, and urban planning within Kolkata's political economy and social milieu.
