Over the past few decades, India has experienced a sudden and spectacular urban transformation. Gleaming business complexes encroach on fields and villages. Giant condominium communities offer gated security, indoor gyms, and pristine pools. Spacious, air-conditioned malls have sprung up alongside open-air markets.
 
In Landscapes of Accumulation, Llerena Guiu Searle examines India’s booming developments and offers a nuanced ethnographic treatment of late capitalism. India’s 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 India’s built environment, as well as widely shared stories of growth and development that themselves create self-fulfilling prophecies of success. As a result, India’s cities are becoming ever more inaccessible to the country’s 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 rapid—and perhaps unsustainable—development across the Global South.

Review Quotes
Spectrum Culture
" Landscapes of Accumulation is a tremendous work showcasing years of ethnographic research that Searle conducted in the National Capital Region of northern India. In each chapter, she further illuminates an aspect of the commodification of Indian land, of the development of infrastructure in India intended not to make life better for Indians but instead to fill the pockets of international financiers (and their local cronies on the ground in India). As a whole, the book is one of the more damning portraits of the mechanisms through which capitalism distorts humanity, shackling humans with sociopolitical structures that define personhood as commodity. We are what we buy."
Journal of Economic Literature
"Presents an ethnographic analysis of the encounter between international investors and their Indian intermediaries as they attempt to produce an international market in Indian land and buildings....Explores the agency of investors who worked to enroll Indian developers who could negotiate local politics and regulations in order to make Indian land and buildings into standardized products that could be traded abroad."
Michael Goldman, University of Minnesota
Landscapes of Accumulation is excellent—original, highly engaging, and on an important topic that currently lacks much quality scholarship. Searle particularly excels at posing key questions through her captivating narratives. This book clarifies a complex production process—it truly is fascinating research.”
Nikhil Rao, Wellesley College
“Fluently written and based on substantial ethnographic work in the NCR and other Indian cities, Landscapes of Accumulation adds to our understanding of the global workings of capital by showing us how its actors work to create a discourse that renders a putatively foreign context like India into legible terms. It will interest scholars of South Asian cities, but also urban anthropologists, geographers, sociologists, historians, and scholars of capitalism. Searle has produced a clear, excellent book that addresses a crucial agent in India’s transformation: the real estate industry.”

“In this brilliant ethnography, Searle convincingly demonstrates the contested and uneven process by which real estate is transformed into a commodity for the global market place. In this process, narratives of the future meet speculative ambitions as Indian builders and multinational real estate companies court and clash over transparency, quality, and profits. This book will appeal to students in a wide range of disciplines: urban planning, geography, anthropology, sociology, and political science.”

"The builder and the broker, as Searle astutely notes, have been more or less absent from much recent work on South Asian cities, and in positioning this text in critical conversation with these movers and makers of capital she provides a much-needed comment on the ways in which neo-liberal finance is rapidly transforming Indian land into a global retail commodity."

Lightweight slide slippers are handmade from wool and decorated with alpaca wool. Due to non-slip soles and a minimal design, this felted footwear is a comfy choice for both men and women.

Home slippers feel like a second skin on the feet. Felt is a natural and renewable material, made of wool, using just hot water and soap - one of the purest processes in textile.



MADE BY HANDS FROM 100 % FELTED WOOL. Hygge home shoes are made from a natural, renewable material - wool. Due to insulation properties of the wool fibers, you feel warm on a cold day and cool on a hot day. This material effects your feet the same way as a light massage or acupuncture.



HOUSE SHOES SOLES. This footwear is covered in natural latex which makes wool safe to walk (non slippery).



AVAILABLE SIZES FOR FELTED SLIPPERS. This design is available in all men and women shoe sizes. We ask you to specify your shoe size while ordering. Don't forget to write down if it's UK, US or EU measurement. Write down your feet length, width and specific characteristics. Tell us if your feet are narrow, wide or have high instep.

MAKING AND SHIPPING BURE BURE. The felting process starts only after a final offer confirmation is done. Thus, I kindly ask You to be patient and wait for two weeks for your item to be prepared for shipment. By doing this, you avoid a waste of materials, which is a frequent issue in an industrial manufacturing.



ECO FRIENDLY PAPER PACKAGES. We save materials and your money. We don’t use boxes for packaging. Boxes will be thrown out. This is why we pack woolens into a paper instead.



TAKE CARE OF FELTED WOOL SLIPPERS

1) Freshen up your woolen slippers by shaking out crumbled dirt from them. Then suck it up with a vacuum cleaner and leave to ventilate.

2) Dry clean.

3) Hand wash felted slippers in a warm water with a small amount of means for wool cleaningand then let woolen footwear to dry naturally in a room temperature.

Caution: do not leave these felted slippers in direct sunlight!
