The Heart of Malaya
The author, a freelance writer, wrote several books that attempted to introduce the reader to the 'real' nature of a range of different countries. In this one he tackles Malaysia in its early years just after independence. His book has been fairly popular since it was first published as he makes a strong case that the country belongs "to all who have staked their claim in her" since most of its inhabitants other than the truly indigenous peoples of the peninsula and Borneo are comparatively recent immigrants.
