The Bungalow in Twentieth-Century India: The Cultural Expression of Changing Ways of Life and Aspirations in the Domestic Architecture of Colonial and Post-colonial Society
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2012 - Architecture - 234 pages
Focusing on the twentieth century, this book correlates the evolution of the bungalow in India from a one storey building with a verandah to a variety of villa-types with the development of modern Indian history. In doing so, it not only explains the various technological, political and social developments that shaped the bungalow, but it examines more generally what it meant to be modern in Indian society as the twentieth century evolved.

The book gives extensive descriptions and illustrations of various house forms through out India. But the book could easily not have the title of bungalow, It looks like the authors have deliberately defined all the house forms as bungalows. A bungalow may be one of the many factors that influenced the development of housing in India but it seems illogical to associate the word 'bungalow' as a connecting factor. I would like the book to be called as a survey of the development of housing forms in India rather than patronising the term 'bungalow'
