9780415629225: Growing up Female in Multi-Ethnic Malaysia (ASAA Women in Asia Series)

This book provides a rich, detailed analysis of the experiences of young women growing up in post-colonial, rapidly modernizing Malaysia. It considers the impact of ethnicity, socio-economic status, and school experiences and achievement. It discusses the effects of Malaysia’s ethnic affirmative action programmes and of the country’s Islamisation. It sets out and compares the life trajectories of Malay, Indian and Chinese young women, making use of interview and questionnaire data gathered over a long period. It thereby depicts individuals’ transformations as they experience maturing into adulthood against a background of social and economic changes, and varying levels of inter-racial tension.

About the Author:

Cynthia Joseph is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Australia.

Review:

"...this book is a useful and insightful addition to a research canon concerned with analysing the shifting and curious convolution of ethnicity and state politics that characterize contemporary Malaysia.  A recommended read.  "
Sara Ashencaen Crabtree
SOJOURN
Vol. 30, No. 2


"This is a persuasive and compelling book [...] Joseph’s study of young females within the schooling
system strikes at the heart of the many questionings and critiques of the NEP."
