Lost Times and Untold Tales from the Malay World
Jan Van Der Putten & Mary Kilcline Cody
New. This book shows how it is possible to combine fun and scholarship. The editors have gathered together a fascinating collection of articles written by well established scholars who have unearthed a pile of witty and amazing gems most of which you're unlikely to have come across before. You'll find answers to how the Komodo dragon influenced Hollywood, why colonial officials were secret pill poppers, what you do at the Get-Rich-Quick Tree, how the use of Wanted posters to catch criminals developed in the Malay world and much much more. There's a good smattering of serious and zany black and white illustrations as well. 396 pages.
