Multiethnic Malaysia (hardback)

( Past, Present and Future )

Featuring contributions from a distinguished team of independent scholars, the chapters in this volume provide a definitive survey of the interaction of race, ethnicity, nationalism and politics in Malaysia. It examines the historical roots of national and ethnic identity, the sources of conflict and social cohesion, and contemporary manifestations of ethnic tension and solidarity in ares such as economic policy, cultural politics, education and migration. In doing so, the contributors delineate a variety of possible paths to reconciliation and the construction of a genuinely multiethnic society.

Challenging mainstream thinking, 'Multiethnic Malaysia' breathes fresh life into debates on ethnicity and the past, present and future of Malaysian society. It is indispensable reading for students, academics, activists and policymakers wanting to engage in these debates, and help achieve a more just and equitable society.
