书籍描述

内容简介
This book provides a rich, detailed analysis of the experiences of young women growing up in post-colonial, rapidly modernizing Malaysia. It considers the impact of ethnicity, socio-economic status, and school experiences and achievement. It discusses the effects of Malaysia's ethnic affirmative action programmes and of the country's Islamisation. It sets out and compares the life trajectories of Malay, Indian and Chinese young women, making use of interview and questionnaire data gathered over a long period. It thereby depicts individuals' transformations as they experience maturing into adulthood against a background of social and economic changes, and varying levels of inter-racial tension.
