In the last quarter of 2004, the Malaysian Cabinet decided to introduce a compulsory course on ‘interethnic relations’ at the university-level with the objective of raising awareness and understanding on the nature and state of ethnic relations in Malaysia amongst the university students from all faculties and programs. This volume offers personal and, at times, outspoken observations by a notable Malaysian sociologist – the General Editor of the ‘interethnic relations module’ – as to the state of current interethnic relations in Malaysia.
