India nurtures a contradiction between two images of its
cities they are the engines of economic growth and, at
the same time, an inadequate and contested space for its
various residents and subjects. This book shows us why
and how this contradiction plays out in the lives of
migrants, on whose labor the city thrives. This
collection of twelve essays investigates the experience
of migrating to three of India’s populous metropolitan
cities: Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi. They focus on the
interrelations between urban policy, governance, forms of
labor, migration and neoliberalism as the political
ideology motivating increasing urbanization of India. It
also shows how cities are increasingly turning into sites
of conflict, fragmentation and gentrification,
fragmentation and acute class conflict.

This book Offers a new history of global finance over the
past two centuries, and marshaling extensive new data to
test established theories of how global currencies work,
Barry Eichengreen, Arnaud Mehl, and Livia Chit’u argue
for a new view, in which several national monies can
share international currency status, and their importance
can change rapidly. They demonstrate how changes in
technology and in the structure of international trade
and finance have reshaped the landscape of international
currencies so that several international financial
standards can coexist.

In the clamour around the demonetization of high-value
Indian currency notes in 2016, a few questions were never
asked: What is the black economy? Does it only include
the illegal sector, i.e. drug trafficking and the like?
How do we take into account illegal earnings from the
legal sector, i.e. unreported or tax-evaded income? How
do these illegal earnings contribute to consumption and
therefore money circulation? Do black profits slow down
money circulation or accelerate it? This book answers
these questions and explains how we can factor in the
entire gamut of illegalities when we study the economy as
a whole. It looks at the concepts and measures of the
black economy, its sources and mechanisms and its
implications for development policy.

This book offers an extensive understanding of
contemporary international business through detailed,
engaging discussion of the development of the
multinational enterprise (MNE) over the past half-
century. By providing an analytically informed basis for
understanding MNEs, two parallel strands of analysis in
International Business (IB) are reviewed: the
`theoretical- and the `practical-. Firstly, Robert Pearce
identifies how the practical restructuring of the MNE as
an organizational form has responded to changes in the
wider global economy and how this evolution has
interacted with the enrichment of theory on the topic.
Secondly, by tracing the persisting dynamics of the MNE-s
structure and strategic positioning, he demonstrates the
use of these systems and how they can help to understand
and organize the future evolution of not only MNEs but of
international business as a whole.

empirical analysis from experiences in the global North
and South. It concludes by identifying what might
constitute holistic, inclusive, progressive and
sustainable local and regional development, and
reflecting upon its limits and political renewal.

Iterations of Law: Legal Histories from India advances
new perspectives on legal history from South Asia. This
book examine the socioeconomic and political contexts
that shape law-making and its practice. The chapters of
this volume interrogate -from below- the framing of legal
regimes, and explore the physical and epistemic violence
of colonial law. The volume critically engages with not
just archival material ranging from case law to legal
treatises but also everyday records of rule to
investigate the relationship between the discipline of
history and the institution of law. It focuses on the
complex moments in the life of the law when rights or
claims simultaneously bring into existence a new economy
of power and authority.

State food provisioning in India had been regarded as an
instrument of social policy since independence. In 2001,
however, following a series of starvation deaths in
several states, a public interest litigation in the
Supreme Court served as the catalyst for extensive
debates regarding the recognition of the right to food as
a basic right in India. This process resulted in the
passage of the National Food Security Act in 2013. This
book lays out the principal arguments offered in the
years leading up to the final act by academics,
policymakers and government officials and prominent civil
society groups such as the Right to Food Campaign.Each
chapter in the volume concerns a major debate relevant to
the food security bill.
