In this collection of insightful essays, Salbiah Ahmad – lawyer, activist and writer – explores and analyses the various dynamics in Malaysia which surround and affect contemporary issues involving religion, democracy, politics, the law, human rights and gender relations. The articles contained within are a compilation of what she has authored for her column ‘Malaya!’ which has appeared in malaysiakini.com since 2001. ‘Malaya!’, the column’s name, comes from Tagalog in which it means ‘freedom’.

In producing these articles, Salbiah Ahmad skillfully combines the analytical skills of the lawyer and the experience of the seasoned activist to tackle complex ideas, making them both understandable and empowering.
