A new edited volume represents ICI fellows’ research and collaborations during the inaugural years of our signature fellowship program (Macmillan, 2010).
Growing Cities in a Shrinking World presents shifting perspectives on the urbanization and globalization occurring in India and China. Productive dialogue between India and China is critical, especially at a time when both countries are actively removing barriers to reach out to each other and the rest of the world. This volume is significant for fostering dialogue that avoids preconceived notions and misconceptions. It focuses on asking the right questions and strives to find answers, however elusive.
The volume is the first in a series of endeavors by the India China Institute to create a space to deepen and expand intellectual collaborations across diverse disciplines in India, China, and the United States.
