Taming the Wild:

Aborigines and Racial Knowledge in Colonial Malaysia

---

Sandra Khor Manickam

With concepts of race being an influential factor in politics and many other aspects of life in present day Malaysia, the author seeks to uncover how these concepts originated. A significant factor obviously has been the colonial attitudes to race, many of which have been taken on in various forms by Malaysians today. By concentrating her focus on attitudes to the people now known as Orang Asli, the aboriginal people of the country, she seeks to extract more general evidence for the development of racial concepts in the country generally. 310 pages with tables, figures, maps, notes, a glossary, a bibliography and an index.
