Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad: their geographical forms and functions
Alam, S. Manzoor
This thesis is a geographical study of two adjoining Indian cities of the Deccan rlateau - Hyderabad and Secunderabad. in this study of the two settlements the physical, ecological and economic structures have been interpreted in the light of functions and historical development. I have tried to make this thesis more than purely descriptive by examining critically these two cities within the more general framework of certain theories of urban morphology.Of the two volumes which comprise this study, Volume I contains text and diagrams while maps are presented in Volume II. All the diagrams and maps are original and the work of the writer, except that in preparing maps 3 to 13 free use has been made of the maps Produced by the Survey of India and the Town Planning Department, Andhra Pradesh.
