Ho Tak Ming
New. This work is a collection of mini biographies and anecdotes of medical practitioners in Malaysia from the 1940s to the early years of independence. Some were well know outside their communities, others not. Most were characters and all were pioneers in developing Malaysia's public health system. They worked at a time before the advent of the private hospitals that make Malaysia a centre of 'health tourism' today, when they were known for their selfless dedication to those in need of care. Included amongst the twenty-two stories are some unusual accounts of what it was like to be a doctor in Japanese Malaya. 298 pages with an index.
