The Renaissance Man:
Royal Professor Ungku A Aziz
Hashim Yaacob, Abu Bakar Abd Hamid, KT Joseph & Azizah Hamza (eds)
A collection of essays in English and Malay by former colleagues celebrating the academic life of Ungku A Aziz, who amongst his many distinctions, was the first and last person to be appointed as Vice Chancellor of the University of Malaya. All other appointments of Vice Chancellors since then have been political appointments. He remained in that position for twenty years, so this book records his contributions to the budding university, in establishing, for example, the university press and library. Essays also record the professor's work and views on the country's language policy and on alleviating extreme poverty in the country. The book is rounded off by a comprehensive essay by the book's subject on the issues of National Unity, Language Policy and Extreme Poverty. 232 pages with an index.
