Reviews: The paradoxical slum

Abstract

"The Durable Slum" is a historical and ethnographic account of Mumbai’s slums, seen through the lens of Dharavi, famous in the 1990s as Asia’s ‘largest slum’. Liza Weinstein traces out the shifting fortunes of Dharavi over the last 50–60 years, as the state cycled between ‘violent insurgencies... interspersed with more benevolent programmatic interventions’.
