India s Urban Housing Theory and Policy

India s Urban Housing Theory and Policy

Policy P B Anand Housing and Urbanisation: A Study of India by Cedric Pugh; Sage Publications, New Delhi, 1990; Rs 250. A NUMBER of studies on housing and urbanisation in developing countries have come up in recent times, thanks to the interest and initiatives of World Bank, UNCHS, USA1D and other development agencies. This book, a result of Pugh's work in India during 1986-87, explores the housing policy in its evolutionary form in India. This highly readable interpretation of India's housing situation is characterised by the continuity of thoughts and ideas which are not confined to the boundaries of each chapter. It would therefore be unfair to present a review of this book in a chapter-wise sequence.
