Capital : the eruption of Delhi by Rana Dasgupta( )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Capital is an intimate portrait of the city of Delhi which bears witness to the extraordinary transmogrification of India's capital. But it also offers a glimpse of what capitalism will become in the coming, post-Western world. The story of Delhi is a parable for where we are all headed. The boom following the opening up of India's economy plunged Delhi into a tumult of destruction and creation: slums and markets were ripped down, and shopping malls and apartment blocks erupted from the ruins. Many fortunes were made, and in the glassy stores nestled among the new highways, customers paid for global luxury with bags of cash. But the transformation was stern, abrupt and fantastically unequal, and it gave rise to strange and bewildering feelings. The city brimmed with ambition and rage. Violent crimes stole the headlines. Dasgupta takes us through a series of encounters - with billionaires and bureaucrats, drug dealers and metal traders, slum dwellers and psychoanalysts - which plunge us into Delhi's intoxicating, and sometimes terrifying, story of capitalist transformation. Together these people comprise a generation on the cusp, like that of Gilded Age New York: who they are, and what they want, says a tremendous amount about what the world will look like in the rest of the twenty-first century. Interweaving over a century of history with his personal journey, Dasgupta presents us with the first literary portrait of one of the twenty-first century's fastest-growing megalopolises - a dark and uncanny portrait that gives us insights, too, as to the nature of our own - everyone's - shared, global future."

Capital : a portrait of twenty-first century Delhi by Rana Dasgupta( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Capital, Commonwealth Prize-winning author Rana Dasgupta examines one of the great trends of our time: the expansion of the global elite. Capital is an intimate portrait of the city of Delhi which bears witness to the extraordinary transmogrification of India's capital. But it also offers a glimpse of what capitalism will become in the coming, post-Western world. The story of Delhi is a parable for where we are all headed. The boom following the opening up of India's economy plunged Delhi into a tumult of destruction and creation: slums and markets were ripped down, and shopping malls and apartment blocks erupted from the ruins. Many fortunes were made, and in the glassy stores nestled among the new highways, customers paid for global luxury with bags of cash. But the transformation was stern, abrupt and fantastically unequal, and it gave rise to strange and bewildering feelings. The city brimmed with ambition and rage. Violent crimes stole the headlines. In the style of V.S. Naipaul's now classic personal journeys, Dasgupta shows us this city through the eyes of its people. With the lyricism and empathy of a novelist, Dasgupta takes us through a series of encounters - with billionaires and bureaucrats, drug dealers and metal traders, slum dwellers and psychoanalysts - which plunge us into Delhi's intoxicating, and sometimes terrifying, story of capitalist transformation.

Delhi Capitale by Rana Dasgupta( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Dehli Capitale est un récit puissant et lyrique qui embrasse à la fois les origines et les implications de l'explosion urbanistique et démographique de Dehli. De capitale à capitalisme il n'y a qu'un pas, et c'est cette métaphore que file avec érudition et talent Rana Dasgupta : il dresse ici un portrait saisissant de la mégapole, et de l'arrogante classe aisée qui la domine aujourd'hui. Mais Dasgupta s'aventure aussi au-delà de ce portrait socio-économique et c'est en écrivain qu'il interroge la violence - réelle, symbolique - au coeur du processus de croissance gigantesque et imparable qui travaille sans relâche la capitale indienne. A la fois balade littéraire et réflexion philosophique, Dehli Capitale se démarque très nettement des récits de voyage comme des pamphlets militants pour développer une complexité de réflexion aussi vertigineuse que les espaces urbains évoqués."
