Item description for Race, Ethnicity, And the State in Malaysia And Singapore (Social Science in Asia) by Kwen Fee Lian Lian Kwen Fee...
Because Malaysia and Singapore share a common colonial, migration, and political history the racial/ethnic composition of the two societies are unsurprisingly similar. However since 1965 state/nation-formation has taken separate trajectories, and this has had a differential impact on the processes of racialization and ethnicization in the two countries.
The contributions in this volume examine how various groups - namely the Chinese, Malays, Tamils, Eurasian, and Orang Asli - have accomodated or resisted the dominant influence of the state in incorporating and subordinating them.
Students and scholars of race and ethnicity will be interested in this work as it is the first attempt to bring together the work of several writers in documenting the consequences of state policies on ethnic-formation in the region, and raises theoretical issues relevant to this.
