Book Review: “Elite Malay polygamy: Wives, wealth and woes in Malaysia” by Miriam Koktvedgaard Zeitzen (2018)

My review of Miriam Zeitzen’s book on elite Malay polygamy has just been published in the latest issue of the Journal of Southeast Asian Studies. This book offers perhaps the first detailed account of Malay polygamy in monograph form, and would be of interest to scholars studying marriage, intimacy, and polygyny (a type of polygamy involving one husband and multiple wives).

If you are interested in reading the review, but do not have institutional access to it, please get in touch.
