The Other Malaysia: Writings on Malaysia's Subaltern History
Farish A Noor
As in most countries, much of Malaysia's oral and written history has been the captive of myth, firstly in the hands of bards and court scribes, then successively in the writings of colonial and post colonial propagandists. So naturally the bits that do not quite fit the prevailing myth get lost. In this book, a collection of previously published articles, the author brings to the fore lesser know episodes and characters in the country's history to shake up the myths and maybe get a bit closer to reality. New Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 2002. 277 pages with some black and white plates.
