Reviews and Features

"The book is undoubtedly a worthwhile read and students, even those familiar with the cities and the issues, will find it illuminating, educative, and largely enjoyable." -- Michael E Leary-Owhin, School of Law and Social Sciences

Gregory Bracken (ed.)

Asian Cities: Colonial to Global

When people look at success stories among postcolonial nations, the focus almost always turns to Asia, where many cities in former colonies have become key locations of international commerce and culture. This book brings together a stellar group of scholars from a number of disciplines to explore the rise of Asian cities, including Singapore, Macau, Hong Kong, and more. Dealing with history, geography, culture, architecture, urbanism, and other topics, the book attempts to formulate a new understanding of what makes Asian cities such global leaders.
