The author, whose specialist field of research is Malay novels written by women, focuses on more than twenty of such novels to demonstrate how women's views have changed since independence. Instead of having romance as their main theme, these novelists focus on paid employment and its effect on social attitudes. They demonstrate that it is possible to be involved in politics, travel and hold powerful jobs while remaining modest and moral. xi and 365 pages.
