It does however set out to record within the context of Malaysian history, the very important part that Tun Razak played in his country's affairs over a period of twenty-five years from 1951 to 1976. It does not attempt an account of his personal or private life; essentially it is a political biography which places the life of the late Tun Razak within the context of his times--the modern history of Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Another is to examine the work of those humanitarian organizations that the world has created in an attempt to bind its self-inflicted wounds. And a third is to explore a little the extent to which the memory of the ineptly named 'holocaust' has affected our perception and our imagination when hearing distant cries for help.

The literature on Mon-Khmer and Tai is copious, but much of it is scattered over a variety of periodicals and general works, and the need for a comprehensive guide has long been felt. The present volume contains more than 900 entries covering upwards of a hundred languages and major dialects. It is indexed for easy reference."

4075 Siburapha BEHIND THE PAINTING AND OTHER STORIES
Singapore Oxford University Press 1990 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
13 x 20 cm.; pg. vi, 191 ; Translated from the Thai and introduced by David Smyth. "Siburapha (pseud. Kulap Saipradit, 1905-1974) has enjoyed a chequered reputation in the Thai literary world, A popular and accomplished writer of romantic novels at the outset of his career in the late 1920s, his later work of the post-war period relected a more politically committed view of the role of the writer and the function of literature. Imprisoned from 1952 to 1957, Siburapha subsequently sought asylum in China, where he remained for the rest of his life. Thereafter his name became taboo until he was 'rediscovered' in the more liberal atmosphere of the early 1970s. This volume brings together Sibuapha's most highly acclaimed novel, BEHIND THE PAINTING, written in 1937, and three of his post-war stories. This is the first time that Siburapha's fiction has appeared in English. " ; 0195889622
