Dr Farish A. Noor
This book project aims to translate two of the works by Dr Burhanuddin al-Helmy, (d.1969) who was a leading anti-colonial activist in Malaysia in the 1940s-1950s and also the President of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party PAS (1956-1969). For the first time, his works which have hitherto been found only in the Malay language and Jawi script will be translated into English. This work will be of interest to scholars of political Islam and Islamic movements in Asia. Brill Press (Leiden) has expressed keen interest in publishing the final manuscript/s.
