Cover photo: This image of the city of Kalimpong, in the Indian state of Darjeeling, shows the density and eclectic building styles characteristic of many cities in the developing world. A contemporary tourist economy benefits from the long-established mixing of many cultures, a rich regional biodiversity, and a strategic site that links India, Nepal, Tibet, China, Bhutan, and Bangladesh.

Back photo: With over a billion people in India, cities such as Delhi teem with activity. Rapid growth in the twentieth century and attempts to retrofit old cities with new technologies and new forms of transportation often create a chaotic appearance that can leave visitors overwhelmed by the visual stimuli and density of people.
