about this item
This book is about architecture and urban planning, a main theme related to historical infrastructure development in the Indonesian archipelago. Through the centuries, the construction of roads and bridges, later the railways, and the introduction of motorized transport caused increasing accessibility and a deeper exploration of the hinterland on the larger islands, which has given rise to the establishment of agribusiness on a large scale and new town settlements.
