MEDIA REVIEWS

"A major contribution to the understanding of Malaysian modernity. The theories and themes discussed... would be of interest to a range of scholars from the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, politics, and human geography."

* Journal of Southeast Asian Studies *

"Goh provides a refreshingly analytical and nuanced account of the interplay especially between competing influences of ethnicity, religion, class, and politics that have shaped modern Malaysia."

* Crossroads *

"This excellent piece of research work... fills a significant gap in knowledge about the evolution and transformation of the cityscapes in modern cities of Malaysia."
