Summary
"This book is about the cultural politics of electrification in India's capital city, and the role of technological infrastructures in shaping contemporary political imaginations in India--imaginations of the state, and also at a local level, of urban interdependence and solidarity. Drawing on both historical and ethnographic case-studies, this book examines colonial electrical installations in Delhi, nationalist legislation for nationwide electrification, and electricity privatization and neighborhood political organization in the early 2000s"--
