Some of the central problems explored in this study are as follows: how are Malay adat laws understood and portrayed by the authors?, what are some of the problems raised and possible factors which influence their selection?, what are the unquestioned assumptions and sources which condition their perceptions?, to what extent can their ideas be considered as accurate portrayals of adat law and what implications do they have not only on the image of the laws but Malay society and culture generally.

By addressing these problems, this book hopes to contribute to a more accurate and balanced understanding of Malay laws.
