1 Review
First published in 1967, this landmark work depicting the twentieth-century growth of communal, ethnic, and national feeling among peninsular Malays is of particular relevance in light of recent developments in Malay nationalism. Drawn from primary Malay-language sources, long periods of residence in Malay households, and first-hand interviews, it is required reading for scholars seeking to explain major events in Malay history. A new Preface by the author sets the book in its historical context.
