Summary:This book is a pioneering work to position the creative city concept within Malaysian urban development discourse. The chapters are written and systematically sequenced to be all-encompassing and comprehensible to audiences both from the academic and non-academic realms. The nascency of creative city development in Malaysia has motivated the timely exploration of the viability of this strategy for selected Malaysian cities (i.e. Kuala Lumpur, George Town, Ipoh, Johor Bahru). The book also discusses the global discourse on creative city and its critiques. This is followed by an overview of Malaysia's macrolevel socio-economic and political structures as well as national policies to frame the Malaysian creative city narrative. The case study chapters are novel, as each Malaysian city unravels its unique experiences and dissects the way the city responds to the creative city agenda amidst local nuances and idiosyncrasies. Suet Leng Khoo, Associate Professor at Universiti Sains Malaysia, has been involved in research related to creative cities for ten years. She has undertaken research projects funded by the Sumitomo Foundation and also the Newton Fund. Suet Leng has published extensively on creative cities in both international and local journals. Nicole Shu Fun Chang studied the contributions of the art sector as part of the creative economy in local economic development for her PhD research. Her research examined the potential of the art sector, focusing on the visual arts industry as one of the core creative industries, in developing a creative city.
