Traditionalism and Ascendancy of the Malay Ruling Class in Colonial Malaysia
Donna J Amoroso
Unlike its neighbours in Southeast Asia, Malaysia managed to achieve its independence with its aristocracy and ruling class mainly in tact. In this work the late Donna Amoroso explains, inter alia, how the egalitarian elements of the independence movement were sidelined. Interestingly the sultans' position was preserved not only because of the wishes of the Malay nationalist leadership but also because the status quo was well suited to British interests. 276 pages with a bibliography and index.
