Class, Race and Colonialism in West Malaysia: The Indian Case
The author originally thought that his best approach to understanding Malaysian society would be to start by studying its component racial parts. He soon discovered that the idea of homogenous Indian, Chinese or Malay groups was a misnomer and so proceeded to look at the effects of capitalism in Malaysia as his best way to work back to understanding the role of different Indian groups in the country's history.
