Based on fieldwork in Malaysia, this book provides a critical examination of the country's main urban region. The study first provides a theoretical reworking of geographies of modernity and details the emergence of a globally-oriented, 'high-tech' stage of national development. The Multimedia Super Corridor is framed in terms of a political vision of a 'fully developed' Malaysia before the author traces an imagined trajectory through surrounding landscapes in the late 1990s. As the first book length academic analysis of the development of Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area and the construction of the Multimedia Super Corridor, this work offers a situated, contextual account which will appeal to all those with research interests in Asian Urban Studies and Asian Sociology.

'A valuable contribution to explicating Malaysia's choice, rationale and pitfalls of its development.'

Yue-Man Yeung, Urban Studies

'There are many strengths to this book, including a tight and well-organized presentation, large and clear illustrations, detailed references and a comprehensive index. it should be welcomed by the scholarly community and government officials interested in seeking to understand how a dynamic nation in south-east Asia charts its own course of nation-building and development in the twentieth century.'
