"The expansion of Mumbai over the last four centuries has been documented in much detail, by both contemporary writers and historians. The change of name from Bombay to Mumbai on the eve of the twenty-first century has produced a renewed interest in the city and its people. However, this publication offers an alternative, unique and authentic voice. Quite simply, it is a book about the city like no other. Govind Narayan's Mumbaiche Varnan was the first full account of Bombay in any language, written just before the explosive growth and renovation of the city." "Govind Narayan's Mumbai, translated into English for the first time, is essential reading for anyone interested in the city. Fully illustrated, with a detailed glossary and biography of the author, students of South Asian and Indian history will find particular value in the text as a remarkable historical document."--Jacket
