When the foundation stone for New Delhi was laid in 1911, it was planned as a seat of colonial power. In the last fifty years, however, it has been transformed into a dynamic cosmopolitan capital of an independent and democratic republic. Set against a historical backdrop that dates back more than a thousand years, this fascinating book covers all the aspects of Delhi that make it a veritable microcosm of India.
Richly supplemented by stunning photographs and illustrations, including previously unpublished and rare archival material, this is a first-of-its-kind portrayal of Delhi as a unique city representing people's power--the political and cultural center of a new India.
