Invention of Politics in Colonial Malaya by Anthony Milner
Book DescriptionThis book, first published in 1995, is a study of political debate in an important Southeast Asian society. It re-examines the formative period in Malay nationalism and argues against using nationalism as the paradigm of analysis. By interrogating key Malay texts from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Anthony Milner shows how contested and problematic the sphere of nationalism was. Central to the book is the notion of politics and it explores the development of political discourse in Malaysia. By stressing the emerging tension in Malay political thinking between monarchy, religion and nationalism, the author provides an essential introduction to the politics and society of modern Malaysia.

Malays, Paperback (October 2010)
Just who are the Malays? This provocative study, now available in paperback, poses the question and considers how and why the answers have changed over time, and from one region to another. Anthony Milner develops a sustained argument about ethnicity and identity in an historical 'Malay' context.
Recovering the Orient, Hardback (August 2001)
Re-appraises and expands the "orientalism" debate by examining the ways in which the Asian "other" acts as a creative stimulus for the European artist, composer and playwright. The text also investigates the extent to which Western concepts can be used to analyze Asian societies and cultures.
