About This Book

Although primarily aimed at readers who wish to gain an understanding of the application of the Malaysian legal system, this book can also form a valuable source of information to students, academics, professionals and the public who are interested in understanding the legal diversity of Malaysia's plural society. The book consists of three main parts - legal history, the status of indigenous law (including separate chapters on Malay, Chinese, Hindu and Native customary laws) and the current basis of the legal system (a chapter is devoted to the status of Islamic Law in the system). It includes references to relevant case laws and cross referencing. In this second edition, the historical introduction has been re-written to add more depth into the socio-cultural link between the current institutions of constitutional monarchy and the legacy of the institution of kingship.
