The Malaysian Judiciary: A Record from 1786 to 1993 is a revelation as it is the only book of its kind in the market today. It traces the evolution of the Malaysian Judiciary, spanning almost two centuries, starting with the occupation of Pulo Penang ( as it was known) in 1786 by Captain Francis Light. The embryonic beginnings of the legal and judicial heritage followed soon after with the introduction of the English Common Law in the new colony. Dato Foong, a member of the Malaysian judicial, takes the reader down memory lane, giving a graphic account of the colourful period interspersed with many interesting judicial figures and epoch-making events which have contributed in shaping and galvanizing the judiciary into the modern form. Many of the present customs and practices of judges and lawyers, for example, were derived from their colonial roots. The text is written in a highly readable style and is well illustrated with enchanting archival and contemporary pictures, many of which are private collection and therefore unavailable to the public
