Among the Forest Dwarfs of Malaya


 Paul Schebesta

At the time of this reprint, this account of the Negrito aborigines of Malaysia remained the only description of the people made by someone who had actually lived with them extensively, although the first edition had been published nearly half a century earlier.  Schebesta, a theologian, gives an account of the Negrito religion that has seldom been bettered and was the first person to identify distinctly separate groups within the wide 'Negrito' definition that had been employed earlier. The book remains essential reading for those wanting to familiarise themselves with Orang Asli culture in the country. Very Good.  Hardback in a Very Good Dust Jacket. Reprint. Originally published in 1928  288 pages with an introduction by Geoffrey Benjamin. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
