Just who are ‘the Malays’? This provocative study 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. The Malays is a comprehensive examination of the origins and development of Malay identity, ethnicity, and consciousness over the past five centuries.
- Covers the political, economic, and cultural development of the Malays
- Explores the Malay presence in Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and South Africa, as well as the modern Malay show-state of Malaysia
- Offers diplomatic speculation about ways Malay ethnicity will develop and be challenged in the future

“… they all beheld a strange animal. It seemed to move with great speed; it had a red body and a black haed; its breast was white; it was strong and active in build…”
And thus began the legacy of the mysteries of old Singapore – the legendary rajahs that ruled the island, the patriotism and treachery enacted in the place atop Fort Canning Hill, the aura surronging Redhill, Radin Mas, Kusu and Sisters Islands, and many more.
You will feel a sense of reverence and awe you witness the events that have helped shape the majestic character of our nation!
Nelson Connect with History for the Australian Curriculum Year 7 is the first in a series of four books that address the new Junior National History Curriculum. The student book is structured to facilitate the pedagogy of the Australian Curriculum for junior history within the context of world history. This is the Teacher’s Edition of the text. It contains the same content as the student book with additional page-by-page wraparound information to assist teachers with lesson planning and instruction. The Year 7 text covers the period from the earliest human communities to the end of the ancient period. Students will discover all about the ancient world, what we know and what we do not know about the ancient past through engaging site studies and history mysteries, why and where did the earliest societies develop and what were the defining characteristics of these emerging ancient societies. The student will come to know about the legacies of these ancient societies and in doing so, make connections with the past. Visual timelines are a feature of the book and are highly effective in illustrating key points. The depth studies allow the student to focus on an ancient society of choice to discover how people lived in these times, what type of clothes and what kind of jewellery they wore, how they practiced their religious beliefs, how they were governed, what they built and ultimately how they fought and what were the lasting legacies these societies left behind today.

- He was from a poor family and had to leave school after just two years of study.
- At a young’s age, he became the main breadwinner for the family.
- He learnt to speak Malay at a time when few other English officials could speak the language.
- In Bencoolen, he liberated the African slaves imported by the the government and even built a school for their school.
Learn more about this pioneer orientalist, humanitarian and naturalist. Here, at last, is an insight into the public and private life of Raffles, a man of vision who was way ahead of his contemporaries in his thinking and entrepreneurial spirit.
