This is a much-welcome new edition of the seminal introduction to Malaysia's constitution by the leading expert in the fi eld. Retaining its comprehensive approach, it examines constitutional governance in light of authoritarianism and continuing intercommunal strife, as well as examining the impact of colonisation on Malaysia’s legal public law structure. Updated throughout to include all statutory and case law developments, it also retains its sociopolitical perspective. A must read for all students and scholars of Malaysian law.
