Kelantan 1838-1969

--

Clive S. Kessler

The author carried out field work in Jelawat, Kelantan, between 1967 and 1969 in an attempt to get an anthropological grip on the community and to study its history. The area was undergoing some upheaval at the time because the Pan- Malayan Islamic Party (PMIP) had wrested power from more traditional parties supported by the state's nobility. One of the key themes of the book is the 20th century transformation of the relationship between former rulers and the peasantry. 311 pages. The contents include chapters on -

  • Malaysia, Kelantan and the Islamic Party,
  • Kelantan before 1886,
  • The Years of Foreign Intervention,
