Abstract

I examine the biographies and memoirs of John Victor Morais to show how middle-class leaders used their colonial legacy to build an independent nation. The affi rmation of ethnic roots and national allegiance continues today, not just in Malaysia, but in the diasporic lives of those who look back even as they venture beyond Malaysia's borders.
