In Landscapes of Accumulation, Llerena Guiu Searle examines Indiaâs booming developments and offers a nuanced ethnographic treatment of late capitalism. Indiaâs land, she shows, is rapidly transforming from a site of agricultural and industrial production to an international financial resource. Drawing on intensive fieldwork with investors, developers, real estate agents, and others, Searle documents the new private sector partnerships and practices that are transforming Indiaâs built environment, as well as widely shared stories of growth and development that themselves create self-fulfilling prophecies of success. As a result, Indiaâs cities are becoming ever more inaccessible to the countryâs poor. Landscapes of Accumulation will be a welcome contribution to the international study of neoliberalism, finance, and urban development and will be of particular interest to those studying rapidâand perhaps unsustainableâdevelopment across the Global South.
