This chapter focuses on two different historical procedures that changed the character of governance and urban life in Malaysia. The first historical procedure occurred between 1948 and 1960, specifically the state of emergency that occurred within Malaya. The second historical procedure relates to the ever-changing efforts made throughout the twentieth century, which aimed to make Islam a central feature in public life. This chapter also gives a new understanding of the conflicting responses of the Brickfields community and the state towards the issues of moral good and urban order.

Keywords:   governance, urban life, state of emergency, Islam, moral good, urban order
