Kuala Lumpur / bibliography item 1
Reference: Lim, H.K. (1978) The Evolution of the Urban System in Malaya. Kuala Lumpur: Penerbit Universiti Malaya.
It is a very comprehensive book talks about how the cities were born and transformed on Malay Peninsula. The book is very informative with a lot of maps and data charts and has a very clear and accurate focal topics. But it is also too comprehensive and hence some detailed information is neglected. For example, the part of British occupation and its impact on urban growth in late 19th century, which I think is very important to Kuala Lumpur, is very vague in the book.
