A mesmerizing tale of the global future, as glimpsed in an emerging-world megalopolis. "Capital" written by Commonwealth Prize-winning author Rana Dasgupta, bears witness to the extraordinary transmogrification of India's capital city. Describing the emergence of the city from partition in 1947 to its shape-shifting present, this tour de force of non-fiction writing expands upon the emergence of an economic powerhouse and seeks to understand the very specific history of the communities who ended up in Delhi and the way that history informs and motivates people today. But this is more than a book about one city; it's a book about all cities and the promise of a global future.
