The Other Malaysia: Writings on Malaysia’s Subaltern History - Farish A. Noor
This is a compilation of some of the articles by Farish A Noor, arguably Malaysia's top public intellectual, that were published in the online daily Malaysiakini.com. His writings aimed to unearth the forgotten and marginalized aspects of Malaysian history, reminding us of the manifold possibilities and contingencies that existed in the past and remain with us still. The articles were an attempt at a sustained critique of Malaysian historiography and an effort to deconstruct some of the more settled and essentialist understandings upon which Malaysian politics, culture and social life are premised.
