This is a collection of papers which have recently been presented at an inter-disciplinary seminar on The City in South Asia: pre-modern and modern, held at the School of Oriental and African Studies, under the auspices of the Centre of South Asian Studies. Some of the papers in this volume are comparative; others are concerned with specific cities-Allahabad, Dacca, Delhi, Karachi, Lucknow and Murshidabad. They deal with three main themes; the city and the state, the city and society, the city and the surrounding country. The book is appropriately embellished with maps and contemporary illustrations.
