Mumbai: Political Economy of Crime and Space
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039147 / 9788125039143; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Innovative and thought-provoking, Mumbai: Political Economy of Crime and Space presents a new approach to the study of crime in Mumbai. The author’s primary objective is to understand the relationship between spatial distribution and the cause of crime in the city. The book analyses how economic and political interests create socio-religious, cultural and regional schisms resulting in the ghettoisation of religious minorities and politically sponsored violence. A substantial addition to the current research on urban crime in India, this book offers the first detailed area-wise social analysis of crime in Mumbai. It presents a comparative analysis of crime vis-à-vis the other megacities—Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. It draws on crime data from 1975 to 2005 for the 83 police stations, 13 zones and 5 regions in the city. It uses recent and advanced methods of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), spatial econometrics, and geostatistics to understand the political economy of crime. Emphasis is laid on the need to improve environmental designs and socio-economic conditions to bring down crime rates, especially in the high-delinquency areas of the city. This book, rich in data, will be immensely useful to students and scholars of sociology, criminology, geography, urban planning and development studies. It will be valuable for law enforcing agencies, administrators and civil society groups. Printed Pages: 258. 033053

2 Abdul Shaban & Saqib Khan (Authors)
Muslims in Urban India: Development and Exclusion
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8180699366 / 9788180699368; Hardcover; New; New; 
The late capitalist phase of development has been marked by intensified ethnic and religious polarisations both at global and local levels. Ethnic minorities and marginalised are faced with increased challenges with respect to their economic development, social and civic rights. Muslims, as a religious minority, are also faced with these challenges in India, and suffer from acute development deficits, ethno-centric discriminatory practices, and physical and social violence, off late conspicuously emerging from mimicry of the global drifts at local level, undermining the social and religious hybridity developed in the country over a historical period of time. Muslims, who in many states of India are largely concentrated in urban centres, are getting confined to their ghettoes, characterised by lack of development and at large a subsistence informal urban economy. Essays in this volume, based on in-depth case studies from many cities of India, highlight the local-global nexuses, concerns and deprivations of Muslims, and opportunities available to them for their development. The book also highlights the peace building process between religious communities, politics of culture, and deprivation among Muslims resulting from the coalescing of traditional cultural elements with neoliberal economy. The book will be very useful for researchers and teachers in the field of Development Studies, Sociology, Political Science, Human Geography, Economic Sociology, Cultural Studies, Islamic Studies and Policy Studies.
