Summary "This volume, third in the series on Bombay or Mumbai, brings together essays that treat the renaming of the city as a point of departure in visiting enduring themes in the city's life. The essays offer insights on what Bombay has become, as it steps into the new millennium. Among other themes, the volume inquires whether the city has managed to retain its identity or if it has lost it like any other large metropolis. This volume will be useful to sociologists, historians, urban theorists, political scientists, and culturalists, in addition to activists and journalists."--BOOK JACKET.
