Item description for Malaysia:A Pictorial History 1400 - 2004 by Wendy Khadijah Moore...

Malaysia: A Pictorial History 14002004 documents the history of Malaysia from the beginning of the Melakan Sultanate approximately 600 years ago to the emergence of Malaysia as a modern nation during the last two centuries. The chief focus is on everyday life as it has been experienced by Malaysians of all classes and ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The period before 1850 is documented with sketches and maps and the later period is documented with photographs. Containing over 1,000 images, this book records not only people but also their dress, cultural and religious traditions and social relationships. It shows the changing physical environment in which people lived, such as traditional and modern buildings, and buildings with a mix of architectural influences. The appearance of some parts of the country has changed enormously because of a growing human population, a changing economy and also as a result of war. And yet the country has its idyllic and unchanging side too. The Malaysian peninsula is seen here through the eyes of the people who recorded it in sketches, paintings, engravings and photographs. Many of the first views produced by the 19th-century professionals were cartes de visite and studio portraits. As time moves forward and the nature of photography changed, much of the material becomes more journalistic, and this evolution of the photographic medium is part of the interest of the book. Indeed Malaysia: A Pictorial History will be of interest to all those in search of a vibrant, in-depth portrait of one of Southeast Asias most important nations, as it was and as it is today. Highlights: Includes many rare images that have never been published before; Volume illustrated in full colour throughout; Historical record of Malaysias social and economic transformation
