Adat Laws in Modern Malaya: 

Land Tenure, Traditional Government and Religion

---

MB Hooker

Unlike other colonisers, the British very often tried to fit their system of government into existing customary law. In Malaya the principal customary law was known as adat and applied to Malays only. In this book the author looks at how adat law had been adapted by the end of British rule in the country and how it affected the peasant social structure. Very Good Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 1972. 294 pages with maps, cases, statutes, a bibliography and an index.
