An Inquiry into Power, Cultural Production, and the Cityscape in Contemporary Urban Penang, Malaysia
The author provides a detailed study of a conflict between urban development and the needs of long term residents who are required to move and see their homes demolished to allow such development. This case involved the Portuguese Eurasian residents of Pulau Tikus, part of the capital city of the island. Interestingly the landowner and major advocate for demolition was the Roman Catholic Church, to which most of the Eurasian community belonged. 225 pages.
