Timeless Penang: Tradition in Transition COMING SOON!

Wazir Jahan Karim (Ed)
Description
From its ancient origins in Kedah, to its rise in the global economy, Penang is a living natural and cultural experience of diverse flora and fauna, ethnic diasporas, and hybridity. It has layers of indigenous history which has produced a cosmopolitan society of Malays, Chinese, Indians, Jawi and Arab Peranakan, Straits Chinese, and expatriates. Penangites who choose to live or run an enterprise in a UNESCO World Heritage City understand this and have developed a peaceful eclectic cultural co-existence with others. 

Penang's heritage experience is holistic and comprehensive; an appreciation of pristine flora and fauna, architectural and interior design, material and culinary culture, with enterprises which reflect Malaysian traditions past and present. Hence, amidst the hustle and bustle of modern city life is a vibrant narrative waiting to be told. Here is the narrative of what makes it so different from other soulless modern states.

11 chapters; 14 authors, academics and specialists in their field; 326 illustrations, maps, charts, and tables; compiled by Dato' Seri Dr Wazir Jahan Karim, this comprehensive work is a must for anyone wishing to gain a greater understanding the past, present, and future challenges of this unique, culturally diverse island and its mainland territory of Seberang Perai.
