The Consumption of Kuala Lumpur

The Consumption of Kuala Lumpur


Sardar, Ziauddin

Pap. 2000

Book ID: 41856

Kuala Lumpur is the postmodern city writ large, a city that, within the short span of a decade, has been transformed from a sleepy capital into a technological marvel with a thriving, diverse and affluent cultural life. Sardar shows how a collision of cultures (Malay, Chinese, Indian, indigenous, Western) has developed and re-emerged in the form of a new synthesis, inducing both a degree of disorientation and a unique sense of energy and excitement.

280 pp. B&W and color photos.
