Hyderabad: A Biography (Hardback)
Starting with the period prior to the city's birth in 1591, the book presents an unbroken and colourful chronicle of Hyderabad, one of contemporary India's most important cities. Charting the city's fascinating march from Bhagnagar to Hyderabad to 'Cyberabad', this story is replete with diverse engaging, eccentric, and often daring characters, some of whose lives are stranger than fiction. Narendra Luther describes the origin and evolution of Hyderabad's unique composite culture, which has continued to attract people since its founding by its poet-builder. Retaining the basic information from the original, this paperback edition includes a new chapter and updated information.
