520    Extreme poverty, which intensified in India during 
       colonial rule, peaked in the 1920s--after decades of 
       imperialist exploitation, famine, and disease--a time when
       architects, engineers, and city authorities proposed a new
       type of housing for India's urban poor and industrial 
       workers. As Farhan Karim argues, economic scarcity became 
       a central inspiration for architectural modernism in the 
       subcontinent. As India moved from colonial rule to 
       independence, the Indian government, business entities, 
       international NGOs, and intergovernmental agencies took 
       major initiatives to modernize housing conditions and the 
       domestic environment of the state's low-income population.
       Of Greater Dignity than Riches traces multiple 
       international origins of austerity as an essential 
       ingredient of postcolonial development. By prescribing 
       model villages, communities, and ideal houses for the 
       working class, this project of austerity eventually 
       reduced poverty into a stylized architectural 
       representation. In this rich and original study, Karim 
       explains the postwar and postcolonial history of low-cost 
       housing as an intertwined process of global transferences 
       of knowledge, Cold War cultural politics, postcolonial 
       nationalism, and the politics of economic development.
