Straits Muslims: Diasporas of the Northern Passage of the
Straits of Malacca
Wazir Jahan Karim (ed)
It is well known that Malaysia is a multicultural country settled principally by Malay, Chinese and Indian communities. This book discusses the role of several Muslim communities, which are not Malay, but which emigrated to Penang and to other commercial centres from the Middle East, India and elsewhere in the archipelago. As often happens with minorities, particularly when they are traders and educated, these Muslim groups tended to punch above their weight so making significant impacts in their new home. New Paperback. First Edition. 189 pages with several black and white and colour illustrations, maps and an index.
