Summary "Based on fieldwork in Malaysia, this book provides a critical examination of the socio-spatial transformation of the country's main urban region. In the late twentieth century Kuala Lumpur experienced a spectacular redevelopment of urban space while the city formed part of an extended metropolitan area. Particular attention is paid here to the development of the Multimedia Super Corridor, a high-tech zone which extends fifty kilometres from the capital, and includes two new 'intelligent' cities, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya." "As the first book-length academic analysis of the development of Kuala Lumpur and the construction of the Multimedia Super Corridor, this work offers a situated, contextual account which will appeal to all those with research interests in Asian Urban Studies and Asian Sociology."--BOOK JACKET.
