Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199062250, Hardcover)

In this book, the author investigates the traditions that shaped colonial Lahore. In particular, he focuses on the conviction that both British and Indian actors who implemented urbanization came to share: that the material fabric of the city could lead to social and moral improvement. In this book, the author investigates the traditions that shaped colonial Lahore. In particular, he focuses on the conviction that both British and Indian actors who implemented urbanization came to share: that the material fabric of the city could lead to social and moral improvement. This belief in the power of the physical environment to shape individual and collective sentiments, he argues, links the colonial history of Lahore to nineteenth-century urbanization around the world. Glover emphasizes that colonial urbanism was not simply imposed; it was a collaborative project between Indian citizens and the British. This in-depth study of a single provincial city establishes Lahore as a key site for understanding the genealogy of modern global urbanism.
