In recent decades, an increasing number of works have been dedicated to the British legal system in Palestine during the Mandate and its legacy upon the emerging Israeli state. With the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza following the war of 1967, works have addressed the controversial role played by Israeli police in occupied Palestinian territories. A number of works have addressed the legal systems imposed on Palestinians, while others have used legal sources – including court records – to write social histories of Palestine and the Palestinians.
The purpose of H-Shehr is to facilitate scholarly discussion and collaboration on the complex processes through which gendered, classed, and raced citizen-subjects have negotiated and been the object of urban projects in North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.
H-Shehr is currently looking for new editors to take over the network and take an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field. We also looking for contributors, bloggers, discussants, resources gatherers, etc. If you are interested in helping build this site, please contact Patrick Cox, H-Net's Vice-President for Networks, at email@example.com.

This blog chronicles the lore and the everyday of Delhi, tripping on its language, tales and spaces, from small talks of the karkhanas and painstakingly meticulous observations of Bashiruddin Ahmad to the bustling weekly bazaars and congested alleys of the city. Chiragh-e-Dilli, or the Lamp of Delhi, was a title given to the 14th-century Sufi poet Nasiruddin Dehlavi, from which a neighbourhood in Delhi derives its name as does this blog.
