Philippine-Malaysia Dispute over Sabah: A Bibliographic Survey

Erwin S. Fernandez

Discipline: Literature, History



The Philippine-Malaysia dispute over Sabah was, and still is, a contentious diplomatic issue. In the interest of understanding its complexity (and one cannot discount that someone might be interested in the near future), a bibliographic essay, one that lists all available literature which directly or obliquely deals with the subject, is here undertaken. Thus, this work has compiled a list of books, journal articles, theses, dissertations, and monographs, introduced with brief notes on their publication arranged chronologically and thematically and pointing out some major points that might provoke the reader into engaging into one or more of its debatable aspects. This bibliographic survey in a way assesses the production of knowledge around the Philippine- Malaysia dispute over Sabah.
