This work gathers together writings by RJ Wilkinson on Malay Law generally and on the 99 Laws of Perak, JR Logan on the laws of Johor, EN Taylor on the law of Rembau and Inheritance Law in Negeri Sembilan, WE Maxwell on land tenure together with chapters on Negeri Sembilan Marriage Law and Harta Sapencharian,  in an attempt to better understand the core tenets of adat. There is also a bibliography of adat cases and an index. Very Good Hardback. First Edition  478 pages. Weight: 1.1 kg. Post free within Malaysia, but, due to its weight, this book is likely to incur additional postal charges when posted outside Malaysia
