The Malay World in Colonial Fiction
Examines the mental images Westerners formed of their subjective perceptions of a unique section of the earth's surface - the Malay world - and in a particular time-frame - the high colonial period (circa 1870 to 1940). Illustrates how the perceptions give rise to a definition of the region as an entity with an identity, spirit and personality internal to itself.
