A City of Villages traces the early nineteenth-century development of Madreas City, describing and analysing the spatial and social transformatin of this important Indo-British colonial city. A valuable case study, this work uncovers the mechanics of colonialism at work in the context of city-making - the contest for authority over space and its use by a political power in the ascendent.
