The Population of Peninsular Malaysia
Singapore University Press, National University of Singapore, 1988 - Business & Economics - 342 pages
This book is by far the most comprehensive study of the multi-racial population of Peninsular Malaysia in terms of the data used and topics covered in the nine chapters and four appendices. The book demonstrates clearly the painstaking effort and skill of the author in compiling and interpreting the vast amount of data from all the available population censuses, vital registration system and administrative records. The strength of the book lies in the author's deep familiarity with the country, particularly the social and economic developments which are relevant to the study.
