Taming the Wild:
Aborigines and Racial Knowledge in Colonial
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.
