520 1  "In this evocative essay on the cultural and social 
       history of a unique and fragile city, Jonathan Porter 
       examines Macau as an enduring but ever-changing threshold 
       between East and West."--BOOK JACKET. "Establishing 
       Portugal and China as distinct cultural archetypes, Porter
       then examines the subsequent encounters of East and West 
       in Macau from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. 
       Avoiding the traditional linear chronological approach, 
       Porter instead looks at a series of images from the city's
       history and culture, including its place in the 
       geographical context of the South China coast; the 
       architecture of Macau, which reflects the memories of its 
       historical passages; the variety of people who crossed the
       threshold of Macau; the material culture of everyday life;
       and the spiritual topography resulting from the encounters
       of popular religious movements in Macau."--BOOK JACKET.
