Focusing on the culture of piracy in the Indian capital, this book looks at what has happened to the city in the wake of the dissemination of the new media and the ways in which it has, and will, affect urban cultures in an age of globalization.Beginning with the imagination of order in 1950s Delhi, through to the contemporary transitions to a media urbanism and a pirate culture in the 1990s, Ravi Sundaram shows how Delhi has been transformed from a world of order and national sovereignty to one of continuing urban crisis, new globalization and media expansion. Using detailed field research, archival work and interpretive constellations, this book raises questions about the experience of the post-colonial city after the passing of classic urban visions which will make it a compelling read for anyone working on urbanism, media and cultural studies, and South Asian studies.
