The Malays:

A Cultural History 

Richard Winstedt

Winstedt, one of the foremost English scholars in Malay affairs at the end of the British colonial period, demonstrates his learning, in this very readable introduction to Malay culture, as he observed it on the peninsula, rather than in the Malay world as a whole. His broad sweep not only looks at culture in the mid-20th century, but also at its roots in Hinduism, animism and other influences prevalent before the arrival of Islam. In this 221 page book there are chapters on Origins, Migrations and Language, Beliefs and Religion, Social, Political, Legal and Economic Systems, Literature and Arts and Crafts as well as 2 appendices with (a) Malay text of passages cited in the book and (b) Relationships in Negri Sembilan as well as a Bibliography.     Please see the scan of the contents page for further details.    This is a revised edition, updated by Tham Seong Chee in 1981
