Ghost Lives of the Pendatang: Informality and Contaminations in Urban Malaysia
This book is the result of ten years of ethnographic study of the lives of pendatang (immigrant labourers) in the urban centres of Kuala Lumpur and George Town, Penang. The subjects are both legal and illegal immigrants who, while creating their own subculture, are also able to 'disappear' into the fabric of the larger urban mass. Their integration is so complete that many sectors of the Malaysian economy would struggle or collapse without their support. New Paperback. First Edition. 174 pages with references and an index.
