Synopsis: Fifty years have elapsed since the Federation of Malaya proclaimed independence in 1957. Six years later, it was joined by Sabah and Sarawak to form Malaysia. It is necessary to place the progress thus far achieved in proper perspective. Half a century is like a flash in the history of humankind yet, in the life of a new nation, it is sufficient to build a solid foundation towards vibrant nationhood. This publication is a special study by the Centre for Malaysian Chinese Studies to commemorate the golden jubilee of Merdeka.
The primary purpose of this book is to examine the contributions of the Malaysian Chinese community to nation-building. Attention is focused principally on the post-independence period but with justified emphasis on the earlier era that constituted the formative stage of the country as a political state. The areas and extent of Chinese contributions are multi-faceted. The present study deals with the more crucial areas that determine the vigour and durability of the Malaysian nation-state. These are identified as those that pertain to the economic, political and cultural aspects of life that combine to make Malaysia what it is today and that have a profound influence on its future prospects.
The present volume is divided into three parts, namely, political perspective, cultural perspective and conclusion.
