Race, Ethnicity, and the State in Malaysia and Singapore.


Race, ethnicity, and the state in Malaysia and Singapore.

Ed. by Lian Kwen Fee.

Brill Academic Publishers


242 pages



Social sciences in Asia; v.7


Eight academics from Singapore and the U.S. contribute nine articles examining how various groups in Malaysia and Singapore--the Chinese, Malays, Tamils, Eurasian, and Orang Asli--have accommodated or resisted the dominant influence of the state in incorporating or subordinating them. Three of the nine contributions were previously published, two in a 1997 special issue of the Southeast Asian Journal of Social Science and one in the Asian Studies Review in 2002. The first text to document the consequences of state policies on ethnic-formation in the region, this work will be of interest to students and scholars of race and ethnicity.
