About the Author:

Jeremy Tambling is professor of literature at Manchester University, and author of several books, including Madmen and Other Survivors: Reading Lu Xun's Fiction (Hong Kong University Press, 2007), and RE:Verse: Turning Towards Poetry (Longman, 2007).

Review:

A book we have all been waiting for – I wish I could have written it. A magnificent evocation of historic Macao, the 'capital of the sixteenth century' in Asia, just as Paris was the capital of the nineteenth century in Europe. The authors are well versed in cultural theory, and in this book they purposely and fittingly adopt the pose of Benjaminian flaneurs as they take us on a cultural walk through some of the significant sites in this beautiful baroque city – before it is turned into ruins by money-grabbing gambling houses. A must-read for all visitors to Macao as well as students in architecture, cultural history and cultural studies. (Leo Ou-fan Lee, Professor of Humanities, Chinese University of Hong Kong)
