George Town World Heritage Site: The Story of the Chinese in Nineteenth Century Penang
Mark Thompson & Karl Steinberg
Although others may claim some credit, Penang would not be what it is today, a mixture of old world charm and glitzy development, if it had not become home to hundreds of thousands of the Chinese diaspora in the 19th century. The centre of their life was and is George Town, the island's capital. This book is a popular account of their commercial and cultural contribution to the city with many examples of how their legacy still flourishes today. 150 pages with many colour illustrations.
