A People's History of Malaysia,
with Emphasis on the Development of Nationalism
Syed Husin Ali
In his preface the author wisely points out that the official histories of the country, whether written before or after independence, are the equivalents of histories of other countries, i.e. they're written by the colonialists, elites or victors. He interestingly highlights the deficiencies of these histories and proceeds to give his very readable 'people's history.' The book's main achievement is to highlight the contributions to the nationalist movement of Malay groups, whose efforts are generally unknown or underreported. New Paperback. First English Language Edition. 194 pages with an index.
