Abstract

In Demanding Development: The Politics of Public Goods Provision in India’s Urban Slums, Adam Michael Auerbach explores why some urban slums in India are able to demand and secure public goods from the state while others fail. This interesting and well-written analysis will enhance understanding of how poor communities use democracy to ‘demand development’ in India and the mechanisms through which slum residents can increase their access to state resources, finds Mahvish Shami. Demanding Development: The Politics of Public Goods Provision in India’s Urban Slums. Adam Michael Auerbach. Cambridge University Press. 2020.
