The Malays of South-West Sarawak Before Malaysia

-------

Tom Harrisson

The main importance of this book was to disprove the previously held belief that the Malays of South-West Sarawak were ethnically similar to Malays in Indonesia and on the Malay Peninsula. Based on anthropological research carried out during the twenty years when he lived amongst them, Harrisson argues that this group were in fact pagans converted to Islam. Harrisson not only records the people's daily life in detail, but also ventures into more general topics, including how one defines what it means to be Malay. 671 pages with plates, illustrations, maps and an index.
