About this title

Synopsis:

Dream Zones explores the dreamed of and desired futures that constitute, sustain and disrupt capitalism in contemporary India.

Drawing on five years of research in and around India's Special Economic Zones (SEZs), the book follows the stories of regional politicians, corporate executives, rural farmers, industrial workers and social activists to show how the pursuit of growth, profit and development shapes the politics of industrialisation and liberalisation.

This book offers a timely reminder that the global economy is shaped by sentiment as much as reason and that un-realised expectations are the grounds on which new hopes for the future are sown.

Review:

This is an important and fascinating book which is likely to become a key text in the anthropology of neo-liberal capitalism, development and industrialisation in South Asia. Engagingly written and ethnographically rich, Dream Zones reveals the multiple meanings, contestations and realities of Special Economic Zones in India, showing how large scale infra structure projects are built upon an 'economy of anticipation' that deals in dreams of the future as much as dystopian nightmares of rupture and loss. (Katy Gardner, Professor of Anthropology at London School of Economics)
