Although Malaysia is generally seen as a country dominated by Malays, Chinese and Indians, there is also a wealth of sub-communities as this book demonstrates. The author brings to life a community of descendants of  Indian immigrants in early colonial times, who practice Saivite Hinduism, have intermarried with the Malay community and speak their own dialect of Malay amongst themselves. New Hardback. Reprint. 118 pages with several black and white photographs.
