Malays and Modernization:
A Sociological Interpretation
Tham Seong Chee
The common view of Malay culture is that it is conservative, placing emphasis on courtesy, values and tradition. In this work the author, a senior lecturer in Malay studies at the time of writing, seeks to understand how Malay society and its beliefs fare in taking advantage of or resisting economic development. He also looks at the values and beliefs of other societies with which the Malay community is most frequently in contact. Very Good Hardback in a Very Good Dust Jacket. First Edition. 319 pages.
