Emotions of culture: a Malay perspective
Wazir-Jahan Begum Karim
Oxford University Press, 1990 - History - 178 pages
This collection of five studies on the Malay psyche examines the emotions of courtship and early marriage, the state of mind of the silat performer and the trance dance, and the little understood phenomena of latah and amok. A comprehensive analysis of some of the more basic and recondite aspects of the Malay mind, culture, and world view, this groundbreaking study forms an invaluable foundation for further research in this field.
