Summary Urbanizing Citizenship examines processes of urbanization in contemporary Indian cities through the lens of urban citizenship. It provides a fresh understanding of the multiple arenas and practices through which citizenship and urbanism are co-constituted in India. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars working on India, this book looks closely at six Indian cities-Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, and Varanasi-and examines a range of processes and contested urban spaces, thus exploring and analyzing their myriad implications for urban inhabitants and their right.
