About this product
- DescriptionThe extended metropolitan regions of Southeast Asia are the dynamic cores of their national ecomies and societies and the frontiers of accelerating globalization. The City in Southeast Asia explores ways of moving beyond outmoded paradigms of the Third World City or a Southeast Asian city 'type'. It begins by contrasting the ackwledged world cities of Singapore and Hong Kong with the aspiring world city of Kuala Lumpur and the still disorganized cities of Bangkok, Jakarta and Manila, and draws comparisons with the national second cities of Chiang Mai, Surabaya, Penang and Cebu. The authors analyze the changing relationships between people and place brought about by temperature controlled environments, the industralization of consumption through large-scale shopping malls, the role of cities as platforms for the globalisation strategies of Asian multinational corporations, and the transformation of public space into private space. They also examine public policy in terms of markets, land use and urban planning, and draw out the implications for research, business and policy-makers. This joint effort by a geographer and an ecomist will be of interest to ecomists, geographers, planners, political ecomists and sociologists.
