This chapter takes a look at the different relationships that were present between local practice, the state, and the law within Brickfields. These relationships were present during a period of drastic change the result of various urban development projects sponsored by the state. The chapter poses the argument that this change exposed a rift between the local subjects' experience of the law and the abstract rule of law itself.

Keywords:   local practice, law, state, urban development projects, drastic change
