Product Description

Now in its 4th reprint, Our Malaysia: Multi-Cultural Activity Book for Young Malaysians is aimed at enabling children and parents to experience Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity. The producers hope that it will motivate future generations to move beyond knowledge and tolerance to understanding and reverence for each other’s culture. To experience our rich diversity in the spirit of enlightenment is to unify in diversity. This is the meaning of the book: an active appreciation and celebration of diversity.

Editorial review

I already use this book in my classes about Asian cultures, and I have to say that the students love it! The class in which I use Our Malaysia is called Culture and History in Modern Asia. I urge students to be sensitive to differences among cultures, and to always try to keep an open mind when observing cultures. Emeritus Professor Philip Billingsley, Cultural Studies and Asian Studies, Momoyama Gakuin University, Osaka
