Routledge Malaysian Studies Series

Series Editor: Mohd Hazim Shah, Shamsul A.B., Edmund Terence Gomez

The Routledge Malaysian Studies Series publishes high quality scholarship that provides important new contributions to knowledge on Malaysia. It also signals research that spans comparative studies, involving the Malaysian experience with that of other nations.

This series, initiated by the Malaysian Social Science Association (MSSA) to promote study of contemporary and historical issues in Malaysia, and designed to respond to the growing need to publish important research, also serves as a forum for debate on key issues in Malaysian society. As an academic series, it will be used to generate new theoretical debates in the social sciences and on processes of change in this society.

The Series covers a broad range of subjects including history, politics, economics, sociology, international relations, geography, business, education, religion, literature, culture and ethnicity. The series will encourage work adopting an interdisciplinary approach.

New proposals for the series are welcomed. Prospective authors should in the first instance contact the series editors, whose email addresses are: drhazim@um.edu.my; shamab@pkrisc.cc.ukm.my; and terencegomez@hotmail.com.
