The Rulers of Malaysia is the 16th and final volume in The Encyclopedia of Malaysia series. It provides a fascinating insight into the history and rich heritage of the Malaysian monarchy, its changing role as the country has developed and its constitutional place in Malaysia’s multi-cultural society of today. Most of the volume is devoted to a presentation of the background and important aspects of each of the royal families as well as of the states in Malaysia without a Ruler. It is complemented by a wealth of images in the form of photographs and specially commissioned artwork. The subject matter of this volume is truly unique and will be appreciated by anyone with an interest in local history and culture.
