About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1998. Cloth. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Shahjahanabad was inhabited in the seventeenth century as the capital city of the Mughal Empire, in the geographical region of Delhi. This work focuses on the structure of the city, its subsequent growth and the numerous functions if came to assume in a period of two hundred years. This study examines the theoretical formulations applied to understand Indian cities which have obfuscated their real form rather than reveal their true images. In order to project a clearer image of Shahjahanabad, historical evidences that may be gleaned from numerous sources have been highlighted here. The society that evolved in contemporary India was a consequence of the natural process of assimilation at the cultural level and a conscious act of state policy. The urban spaces created by this society were analogous to its development. The experience of inhabiting Shahjahanabad was not a ubiquitous feature duplicated in the other capital cities of Asia and the "Islamic World". The fortunes of Shahjahanabad were not linked solely with the centripetal tendencies of the Empire, but had an identity outside it. That is why the city retained its prominence and economic viability even after the Mughal rulers had lost their de facto powers. On the other hand, the cross-section of society who had contributed towards the inhabiting of its urbanspace, had many things in common and had created a distinct, urban culture. A conjunction of several factors inhibited the growth of the city in the late eighteenth century. The officials of the English East India Company assumed power over Shahjahanabad in 1803 and reinforced the peace process that had already begun. Certain dichotomies of this period were translated in the urban fabric of urban life and space even before the show of cultural belligerence by the British. Printed Pages: 256 with 5 maps and 8 four-colour plates. Size: 14 Cms x 22 Cms. Seller Inventory # 031171

About this Item: Cambridge University Press, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. From 1400 to 1750, Asian capital cities were often ruled in such a way that they became symbols of the power and influence their emperors extended over their states at large. These `sovereign cities` became the empire in miniature. Shahjahanabad is the first study of a pre-modern Indian city (Old Delhi) as a sovereign city. Stephen Blake explores the way in which the emperors` and nobles` palaces and mansions dominated the landscape; how cultural life revolved around that of the emperors and their families; and how the households of the great men also dominated the urban economy and controlled a large percentage of state revenue. This study thus illuminates how Asian capitals were not the great amorphous agglomerations described by Marx and Weber. Instead they were urban communities with their own distinctive style and character, dependent on a particular kind of state organization. Printed Pages: 244. Seller Inventory # 41548

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.?, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Reprinted. Shahjahanabad was inhabited in the seventeenth century as the capital city of the Mughal Empire, in the geographical region of Delhi. This work focuses on the structure of the city, its subsequent growth and the numerous functions it came to assume in a period of two hundred years. The study examines the theoretical formulations applied to understand Indian cities which have obfuscated their real form rather than reveal their true images. In order to project a clearer image of Shahjahanabad, historical evidences that may be gleaned from numerous sources have been highlighted here. The society that evolved in contemporary India was a consequence of the natural process of assimilation at the cultural level and a conscious act of state policy. The urban spaces created by this society were analogous to its development. The experience of inhabiting Shahjahanabad was not a ubiquitous feature duplicated in the other capital cities of Asia and the "Islamic World". The fortunes of Shahjahanabad were not linked solely with the centripetal tendencies of the Empire, but had an identity outside it. That is why the city retained its prominence and economic viability even after the Mughal rulers had lost their de facto powers. On the other hand, the cross-section of society who had contributed towards the inhabiting of its urbanspace, had many things in common and had created a distinct, urban culture. A conjunction of several factors inhibited the growth of the city in the late eighteenth century. The officials of the English East India Company assumed power over Shahjahanabad in 1803 and reinforced the peace process that had already begun. Certain dichotomies of this period were translated in the urban fabric of urban life and space even before the show of cultural belligerence by the British. Seller Inventory # MRML(I)-9788121508025
