The Way Home:
The Isolated Emotional World of Former Leprosy Patients and Their Descendants
Tan Ean Nee & Joshua Wong
Leprosy or Hansen's Disease is now curable, although it was not always so. As in many other parts of the world, British colonial officials enforced a strict separation of leprosy sufferers from the rest of the community in settlements. In this book two journalists team up to tell the story of one such settlement at Sungai Buloh on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. The authors gained the trust of the residents so as to be able to bring to light the plight of those who are still isolated and their descendants. 291 pages.
