Macau before handover to China
The urban planning made by colonial government
To look into the impact of casinos on the urban planning, the original plannings of new reclaimed areas should be investigated as well. This book clearly shows the policy of colonial government in many aspects, including economic, political and urban planning policy. From the images and information cited in the book, the attitude of colonial of government towards the future development of lands of Macau is revealed. Since the colonial government never expect the gambling industry to dominate the economy and the urban spaces of Macau by such a large extent, this book helps provide a strong evidence to show the urban impacts brought by the gambling industry and casinos.
