The Chinese Language Movement in Malaysia, 1952-1967:
Language, Ethnicity and Nation-Building in a Plural Society
Tan Yao Sua & Teoh Hooi See
Malaysia is unusual amongst countries where the Chinese Diaspora has settled, in that schools in the Chinese medium still flourish. So much so that parents from other linguistic communities often choose to educate their children in these schools to take advantage of their high standards. However this may never have happened without the strong campaigning of Chinese educationalists in the run up to and after independence. This book revisits that struggle as a reminder of the importance of diversity in a multicultural country. 94 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page for further details.
