Dr. Farish Noor - What Your Teacher Didn't Tell You

Dr. Farish Noor - What Your Teacher Didn't Tell You

Ah, finally managed to get a copy of "What Your Teacher Didn't Tell You" by Malaysia's favourite political historian, Dr. Farish Noor. It is based on Dr. Farish's public lecture series at The Annexe, of which I am privileged to have attended one of them last year (Dr. Farish Noor and books).

Of all the chapters in the book, I am particularly interested in "Hang Tuah the Pacifist". Dr. Farish has brilliantly recreated Hikayat Hang Tuah into something new and exciting. I mean, anybody can read and understand the thick hikayat but not many can read and interpret the hikayat like how Dr. Farish did.

Frankly speaking, history would be so much interesting if we have people like Dr. Farish teaching the subject in schools.

Anyways, I have yet to read the whole book, but have only skimmed through few pages. Still, I am recommending the book for all of you.
