The Towns of Malaya
by Neil Khor and Mariana Isa and Maganjeet Kaur
The Towns of Malaya examines the history, development, planning and architecture of the major towns of Peninsular Malaysia. The book will be divided into chapters each focusing on different types of Malayan towns, including royal towns, ports, mining towns and agricultural towns. In total more than 25 towns will be covered in turn in the book, each with its own section illustrated with maps and archival photographs.
Drawing on extensive photographic and map archives including those of the National Archives of Malaysia and private collections, this book will provide fascinating visual insights into urban life in Malaya in days gone by.
