    DescriptionThe book studies the baroque and the postmodern art and architecture of Macao, as an ex-Portuguese colony founded in the sixteenth century. Examining how the 'Baroque' has been used in critical and cultural theory, it uses this to help visitors to Macao understand its complex history, both colonial and Chinese.

    Review quote
    "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; author of City between Worlds: My Hong Kong
