In this book, Singapore architect and intellectual William Lim continues his search for alternative Asian perspectives to Eurocentric modernity and US-style globalization. This compilation comprises essays and lectures of the past two years, when the author pondered contemporary critical cultural and urban discourses through which he formulated new ideas and analyses, particularly in relation to the postmodern, glocality and social justice. Lim's articles express powerful indictments of the multiple failures of Eurocentric modernity. He challenges the mainstream modernist theories on urbanism and globality. He offers critical alternatives and expands the frontiers of radical postmodern urbanism to include sustainability, basic needs, citizen participation and social justice. The title of the book, Alternative (Post)modernity, clearly signals the complex relational fluidity, hybridity and de-territorisation between modernity and postmodernity. The slogan of "think global and act local and vice versa", perhaps can describe the dialectical, indefinable and ever evolving relationship of (Post)modernity. 183pp. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 034013
