About this title

Synopsis:

First published in 1929, this book sets out to systematically describe the non-Muslim peoples of Sabah. Although today's readers may balk at instances of cultural chauvinism that were typical of the author's era and society, the book nonetheless remains an invaluable source of information on various aspects of Sabahan society ranging from traditional warfare, headhunting, and jungle and river craft to popular folklore and music. This unusual text is enhanced by more than 75 photographs and illustrations.
