New publication: Scholar activist Khoo Khay Jin

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

Loh, Francis Kok Wah, ed. 2023. Scholar activist Khoo Khay Jin: reflections on the Penan, Sarawak and Malaysia. Petaling Jaya and Penang: SIRD and Aliran.

Khay Jin was a rare person of remarkable intelligence, talents and humanity whose friendship I am much indebted to. His typically original and iconoclastic analytical insights shed much precious light for our generation and others to come. This long overdue volume will help to make his work more widely accessible.
Prof KS Jomo, former UN assistant secretary general
Aliran has a wider introduction to the book, including the table of contents and foreword by Syed Husin Ali.
** Chapter 18 (pp.53-55) is my contribution, Mentor, Friend, Companion, and So Much More. Read here.

This new book can be obtained from the Aliran office in Penang and at the Gerak Budaya book store in Petaling Jaya.
