Danny Wong Tze-Ken
This history of of the Chinese in Sabah highlights the important role that the community plays in the state. Although Malaysia generally has a large Chinese population, wielding greater influence than their numbers might suggest, the Sabah Chinese are also distinctive in that they are mainly a Hakka community, have a large Christian element and have provided three chief ministers of Sabah. The community, making up less than 10% of the population there, were also responsible for a significant uprising against the Japanese occupation in what was then British North Borneo. 218 pages.
