The Law & Child Labour in Malaysia:
Case Study in a Chinese New Village
See Hoon Peow
One of the byproducts of the Communist insurrection in the 1950s was the creation of 'new villages', mainly for the the Chinese, so that the Government could keep a better eye on them. The remnants of this scheme still exist with Chinese communities living in rural areas, surrounded by people of other races. It was in one such community, near Kuala Lumpur, that the author, a sociologist, carried out extensive research to better understand community practice of and views about child labour. He concludes that the practice may not just be an answer to poverty, but that culture and Education also play a part. 168 pages New First Edition. Paperback.
