‘The Malay Rulers : Regression or Reform?’ deals with a big subject – the traditional Rulers of Malaysia. There are nine such Rulers, comprising seven Sultan, a Raja and a Yang di-Pertuan Besar, for nine Malay States. Besides these Rulers, there is also the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for the whole country, who is elected in rotation every five years by the nine Rulers.
The author examines the position, role and power of the Rulers now as provided by law and as practiced. From the historical angle, he traces the changes the Institution of Royalty has undergone over time owing to different events or influences leading to the present. Finally, the books tries to predict the likely future for the Malay Rulers.
