Disappearing Asian City by William S. Logan

Book Description

The Disappearing Asian City is a comparative study of urban heritage attitudes, threats, planning policies, and practices in a selection of fourteen Asian cities. It focuses on the theme of the steady erosion of what many Asian and Western commentators have regarded as the quintessential 'Asian' qualities of those cities, particularly in terms of their built form under the impact of current processes of rapid economic and cultural globalization.
