    I first heard about Farish Noor when I was procrastinating from my uni work Browsing through articles of anti incumbent government sentiments which are mostly gibberish and unsubstantiated, reading his work is like a Mr.Darcy moment swoon giggle swoon Reading Noor s articulate and immaculate analysis on our national predicament is both extremely erotic and refreshingly intellectual Throughout the book, I often

    Encountered a lot of Never knew that moments in reading this book, providing for some useful knowledge.The author desires to make true historyaccessible to the Malaysian public, by taking it down from the ivory towers and making itpalatable to the Joe Malaysian Public But how accessible can it possibly be when the writing is so reminiscent of boring text books, using bombastic, academia like language It does not make f

    4 5 stars.WYTDTY comprises a series of lectures on history of the Southeast Asia Keris, sexuality, politics and Hang Tuah Basically, it revolves on how Malaysia has lost its racial inheritance due to British colonization and ethno nationalist politics Encountered a lot of omg baru tahu moment gila enlightening, I never thought Malaysian history could be this colourful I would never look at Keris the same way again.

    If you re Malaysian and educated in history in state schools, Farish Noor s lessons are eye opening and timely They stand as an antidote to the deliberately divisive yet unabashedly vocal communitarian minorities that threaten to devolve Malaysians into little squabbling tribes each obsessed only with their parochial needs and desires Malaysia stands as one of most successful stories of pluralist society in the world today, but a reminder is needed time and again that such a condi
