Dream Zones : Anticipating Capitalism and Development in India, Paperback / softback Book

Dream Zones : Anticipating Capitalism and Development in India Paperback / softback

Part of the Anthropology, Culture and Society series

Paperback / softback


Dream Zones explores the dreamed of and desired futures that constitute, sustain and disrupt capitalism in contemporary India.

Drawing on five years of research in and around India's Special Economic Zones (SEZs), the book follows the stories of regional politicians, corporate executives, rural farmers, industrial workers and social activists to show how the pursuit of growth, profit and development shapes the politics of industrialisation and liberalisation.

This book offers a timely reminder that the global economy is shaped by sentiment as much as reason and that un-realised expectations are the grounds on which new hopes for the future are sown.
