Uncivil City: Ecology, Equity and the Commons in Delhi

01 February 2020

Amita Baviskar

The sociologist Amita Baviskar examines over twenty years of environmental politics and urban development in Delhi, including infrastructure-building for the 2010 Commonwealth Games and the destruction of parts of the Ridge. She poses the idea that debates about city planning are often distanced from questions of ecology or justice. This book is an attempt to answer why.
