Bangsawan--the first popular urban commercial theatre in Malaysia--emerged in the late nineteenth century as an adaptation of the Parsi theatre of India which toured Malaya. This book traces stylistic changes of Bangsawan from the late nineteenth century to the 1980s, linking these changes to socio-political transformations in Malaysian society.

Review:

"Bedside companion for a week, coffee-table adornment for a month, and for ever a place on the shelves from which it can be easily and quickly retrieved: that should be the lot of this uncommonly handsome production with its 400 years of history to recount...and its scholarship and thoughtfulness which are both scrupulous and engaging."--Id

Synopsis:

This study of bangsawan traces the stylistic changes in its theatrical form from the late 19th century to the 1980s and links these changes to the socio-political transformations prevalent in Malaysian society.
