Welcome! Here you'll find the complete text of the comprehensive and annotated Orang Asli bibliography (2001), which I edited and has been out of print for some years now. I haven't updated the book, but will be happy to feature updates on this blog from readers. I'll also blog about anything that occurs to me, but not very often.
