Sulalat u’s-Salatin atau Sejarah Melayu, bersama-sama dengan Hikayat Hang Tuah adalah dua buah karya klasik agung orang Melayu yang tidak perlu ditekankan peri pentingnya dalam sejarah kebudayaan bangsa itu. Dihasilkan pada abad ke-16 dan ke-17, karya yang asalnya ditulis berperingkat-peringkat dengan berdasarkan tradisi lisan, masing-masing telah menjadi rujukan utama dalam pengajian sejarah dan kebudayaan bangsa Melayu. Kendatipun banyak orang menganggap Sejarah Melayu sebagai sebuah karya sejarah yang bona fide, dan ramai pula yang menganggap Hikayat Hang Tuah adalah epik sejarah yang benar-benar meriwayatkan petualangan Laksamana Melaka yang hidup antara abad ke-15 dan ke-16, namun usaha membicarakan dua teks Melayu klasik ini tidak pernah dibuat secara kritis untuk  menentukan dengan pasti sejauh mana Sejarah Melayu dapat dianggap sebagai sumber sejarah yang boleh dipercayai, dan sejauh mana pula manusia yang bernama Hang Tuah itu benar-benar wujud dalam sejarah. Mungkinkah kewujudan Hang Tuah itu hanya berasaskan kepercayaan banyak orang, setelah terpengaruh oleh Hikayat Hang Tuah yang pernah tersebar secara meluas di serata pelosok dunia Melayu semenjak tidak kurang daripada empat abad yang lalu?
Buku Antara Sejarah dan Mitos yang bernada kritis ini ditulis oleh seorang sejarawan yang cuba merungkai persoalan kebolehpercayaan Sejarah Melayu sebagai sumber sejarah yang utuh, dan juga menganalisis secara kritis kewujudan Hang Tuah dalam sejarah silam Melaka bagi menentukan sama ada figur ini adalah benar-benar tokoh sejarah ataupun semata-mata tokoh yang dimitoskan sahaja.

Anything but the Law: Essays on Politics and Economics

 
Author: Tommy Thomas
Format: Paperback 340 pp.
Subjects: Economics, Malaysia, Politics
ISBN: 9789670960074
Publisher: SIRD
Published: 2016
Price: RM50
 
“With legal acumen and moral vision, Tommy Thomas presents a compelling narrative for a version of statehood that is inclusive and accountable …  
 Thomas offers a riveting chronicle and judicious analysis of two contentious political issues – the bifurcation of Islamic state vs secularism and the social contract …
 The author laments that his foray into economics is with much trepidation; but he seems to be an advertent economist in his essays on unbridled US market capitalism and financial crisis. This might turn him into a ‘public enemy’ of the ‘robber barons’ …
 The book is the erudition of a public intellectual, who passionately argues for a just and equitable society.”
Anwar Ibrahim
Former Deputy Prime Minister & Former Leader of the Opposition
 
“It is an intellectual joy to read in print, Tommy Thomas’s distinctive and irrepressible wit as he takes on a myriad of issues that have affected our beloved country … Readers would be awakened to the horrific realization that what Malaysia is today has, in more ways than one, sharply deviated from the visions of our founding fathers. Hopefully this will wake them up to rescue our country from spiralling downwards to despair.”
Lim Guan Eng
Chief Minister of Penang
 
“A fine collection of essays on political and constitutional affairs by one of the sharpest legal minds in Malaysia. A must read for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the issues facing us as a nation and people.”
Ho Kay Tat
Malaysian Insider & Edge

Abuse of Power: Selected Works on the Law and Constitution

ISBN: 9789670960081
Publisher: SIRD

Price: RM50

 

 “Amongst the select group of constitutional law advocates in Malaysia, Tommy Thomas ranks among the best – fearless, dedicated, committed and vocal in his decades-old pursuit to entrench respect for fundamental rights and liberties for the ordinary Malaysian. He brings to his writings the same passionate advocacy as a constitutionalist as he has done in the numerous cases argued by him in our courts of law – without fear or favour, and with a conviction borne out by a deep-seated belief in the sanctity of the Constitution, despite numerous setbacks over the many years of litigating in court over constitutional issues …
 This timely collection of essays should be read by lawyers and non-lawyers alike for its valuable insights into important constitutional issues, and for the thinking jurist, it will serve as a beacon of conscience into what is right, correct and proper under the Constitution. … 
 It will be a disservice to the advancement of constitutional law in Malaysia to dismiss the views of a constitutional thinker like Thomas without deliberate and conscious reflection – be it in court or elsewhere.”
Dato’ Mohamad Ariff Yusof
Retired Judge of the Court of Appeal
 
 
“In endorsing this book, I feel greatly privileged because I have known the author for many years. When I was on the bench, he used to appear before me as a young lawyer and I found him to be very good and alert on his feet. Equally, this book shows that he is even better in his writing …
 When I was under siege during the 1988 Judicial Crisis episode, Tommy Thomas, was one of the lawyers in a team headed by the late Raja Aziz bin Addruse trying to save the judiciary.”
Tun Salleh Abas
Former Lord President

The Chinese Language Movement in Malaysia, 1952-1967: Language, Ethnicity and Nation-Building in a Plural Society

Author: Tan Yao Sua & Teoh Hooi See
Format: Paperback 104 pp.
Subjects: Education, Ethnic Studies, History & Biography
ISBN: 9789670960043
Publisher: SIRD
Price: RM20.00
 
The Chinese language movement in Malaysia was launched by the Chinese educationists to demand for the recognition of Chinese as an official language and to legitimise the status of Chinese education in the national educational system. In the process, the official language issue evolved into an ethnic issue that strained ethnic relations between the Chinese and the Malays with severe political implications that threatened to impede the nation-building process. The Chinese language movement was launched in 1952 as a response to the British attempt to establish bilingual national primary schools (commonly known as national schools) teaching in English and Malay to replace the vernacular primary schools that had existed since the colonial period. It picked up pace when the Chinese educationists managed to garner political support for their demand. But the Chinese educationists decided to temporarily halt the movement prior to the election of an interim local government following political promises to safeguard the development of Chinese education. Unfortunately, subsequent developments did not live up to their expectations, especially the forced conversion of the Chinese secondary schools to national-medium secondary schools, leading to the revival of the movement which reached new heights prior to the enactment of the National Language Act in 1967. But the movement was strongly contested by the Malay nationalists affiliated to a language action front. Also, there was a lack of Chinese political support from within the coalition government. All this brought to an end a language movement that was intended to legitimise the position of Chinese education in the national educational system.
 
This work examines the politics of language in Malaysia during a crucial period when the nation-building processwas in its formative stages. It focuses on the contrasting linguistic assertions of the Chinese educationists and the Malay nationalists as well as the attempt by the government to resolve these assertions through an accommodative approach. As it shows, language and ethnicity are inextricably intertwined as far as the nation-building process in plural societies is concerned. Language and ethnicity remain a relevant issue in contemporary Malaysia, especially when it involves the vernacular primary school system which has evoked intense ethnic contestation over its actual functional role in the nation-building process.

‘Marco Ferrarese: from the land of Raw Power and Indigesti he comes, fellow journeyman of sweat-thronged underground music, and the Herman Melville of the international fanzine-cum-Web page nation’
David Ensminger, author and punk historian 
 
Between 2010 and 2015, travel writer, author and metal punk guitarist Marco Ferrarese was the one and only ‘white elephant in the room’ of the Malaysian metal punk scene. A European inbred metal punk fool stranded in a globalised world of transnational extreme music chop suey. In this highly electric and graphic memoir, Ferrarese tells you how it was to play lead guitar in Penang’s thrashcore band WEOT SKAM, negotiating flimsy stage set-ups and shady promoters in order to gel into a developing world’s music scene. He takes you on a no-frills road bonanza scouring for sonic extremities across the whole length of Malaysia and Borneo. He chases down long-haired metal punk descendants of Iban headhunting tribes, scrawny Bidayuh anarcho-punk rockers, Kadazan-Dusun activist artists, skullcap-toting Muslim death metallers, and gets you a seat in WEOT SKAM’s rickety van for a DIY sleigh ride through the bowels of Jakarta and the vulgar, bogan-filled streets of Bali. Will your seatbelts fasten quickly enough?

The entire period of Mao Zedong’s leadership is now portrayed as a disaster, one long killing-spree, and any scrupulous efforts at questioning this version of events have been largely ignored by the international mass media.
 
What is interesting is that the efforts of death toll-inflating academics and media appear to have had little impact on the working people of China. Indeed anti-Communists find the resilience of Mao’s popularity baffling and frustrating. The common people are simply ruled out as rational actors. Media accounts do occasionally quote the views of ordinary Chinese, but these, of course, are not cited as evidence of consciousness of their class interests. Rather, they are portrayed as confused moral nostalgia for ‘simpler days’, a fetishistic mania for Mao memorabilia, a morbid religious reverence for his embalmed body, and so on.
 
Swimming against the current of the academic industry and the international mass media, the contributors to this book have begun the task of recording the views and experiences of the common Chinese people regarding the period of socialist China, as a vital source of historical truth.

Rainforest Hero : The Life and Death of Bruno Manser

In 1984 Swiss shepherd Bruno Manser trekked through the virgin rainforests of Borneo to live among the jungle’s last nomads. In six years among the Penan people, Manser witnessed the wholesale destruction of one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems through rapid deforestation. He swore to do everything he could to stop it.
 
Manser’s globetrotting campaign brought the world’s attention to tropical ­deforestation. It also made him an enemy of Asia’s timber barons. In 2000 he disappeared without a trace.
 
Ruedi Suter’s engrossing biography – the first in English – charts Manser’s ­extraordinary journey from a young man who sought to escape civilization for the peace of the jungle to a campaigner who would stand up to oligarchs, lead protests around the globe, and, ultimately, give his life for the forests that he loved.  
 
Bruno Manser waged a passionate war to protect Borneo’s rainforests from loggers, [then] he mysteriously disappeared. 
    — Time Magazine, Asia Edition
 
Bruno Manser was ready to pay the highest price for the protection of the world’s rainforests – and the empowerment of those who live in them.
    — Ruth Dreifuss, former President of Switzerland
 
Ruedi Suter 
was born in the Belgian Congo in 1951 and writes about the environment and human rights from Basel, Switzerland. He closely followed the work of Bruno Manser for many years, and was involved in one of the final searches for the missing campaigner. 

Voices from the Rainforest: Testimonies of a Threatened People

  “The inhabitants of the rainforest must be allowed to speak for themselves,” wrote Bruno Manser in 1992. At first glance, a European living with the Penan of Sarawak may have seemed like a quaint curiosity, but Manser was careful to redirect public attention to where it was most needed – the plight of his adopted people, beleaguered by human rights abuses and the destruction of their home. 

 
Voices from the Rainforest tells the story of logging in Sarawak, its devastating effects on indigenous people, and government collusion with their suffering. It’s a chronicle of injustice, brutality and resistance, recounted by Penan themselves, while Manser’s illustrations bring the rainforest to life. This book is an essential record of the injustices suffered by the Penan in the 1980s and 1990s, and a reminder that the struggle is not over yet.
 
“Bruno Manser did more than anyone else to bring tropical deforestation to the world’s attention – until he mysteriously disappeared in Malaysian Borneo. Twenty years after its release, this book remains a must-read for everyone interested in the plight of the Penan and the world’s indigenous peoples.”
           — Lukas Straumann, Author of Money Logging

The Majority-Minority Nexus: Education of Ethnic Minorities in Plural Societies

Authors:   R. Santhiram & Tan Yao Sua
Format: Paperback 119 pp.
Subjects: Education, Ethnic Studies, Social Studies
ISBN: 9789670630991
Publisher: SIRD
First Published: 2015
 

This monograph examines the education of ethnic minorities in plural societies within the broader context of majority-minority relations. It comprises eight theoretical chapters dealing with various aspects of the education of ethnic minorities. The education of ethnic minorities in plural societies has always been a hotly contested area, having a dynamic of its own, often involving minority linguistic and cultural claims that go against those of the majority. This is especially true in the case of non-marginal minorities or active minorities who are in a position to make such claims. Notwithstanding the right of the minority groups to use their own language in plural societies, when such claims are pitted against the majority language, they have to accept the fact that the majority language is usually recognised as the language of national integration and the sole or the main medium of instruction in the national educational system and as such, their claims for minority linguistic rights should not override the supremacy of the majority language. It is perhaps for this reason that ethnic minorities have to take a middle course so that their linguistic and cultural claims do not jeopardise their social mobility as well as the nation-building process in plural societies. Such an act of balancing is not only necessary but also crucial to the survival of ethnic minorities within the mainstream society. It is essentially a matter of choice between maintaining their ‘life styles’ or ‘life chances’. It is against this backdrop that bilingual education is perhaps a viable option for ethnic minorities to accommodate their educational needs as well as their role in the national-building process. While there are different models of bilingual education, the Malaysian model of transitional bilingual education for the ethnic minorities merits our attention. Despite some shortcomings in its implementation, this model of bilingual education has been able to ensure language maintenance within a wider shift to the majority language.

First impressions can be deceptive, as Julian Lee notes in the introduction to this book, and that’s why he sees merit in second thoughts. In this engaging collection of essays and reviews, he gives us a whirlwind tour of topics as diverse as Gangnam Style and the Harlem Shake; the peculiarities of human interaction; cultural variations in emoticons; the art of the car sale; histories of fruit; the merits of pessimism; and why you think your phone is vibrating when it isn’t. Not only this, but he can draw a line from Mars Attacks! to Edward Said in one breath, and explain what the plot of Transformers has to say about gender inequalities.

With engaging illustrations by Jun Kit that astutely distill the essence of each chapter with humour and insight, Second Thoughts promises to inform and delight in equal measure.
