The hikayat Abdullah : the autobiography of Abdullah bin Abdul Kadir, 1797-1854 / an annotated translation by A.H. Hill

This modern English translation bears in mind the needs of Malayan students. In it, Abdullah describes the events of his life in roughly chronological sequence his narrative lacks formal development. He discusses unconnected topics in no logical order, returning again and again to his favourite themes like the evil of debt-slavery and the difficulty of the Malay language
