Abstract: 
This book is covered in two volumes and is based on author’s research conducted using unexplored primary sources at several missionaries' archives at SOAS, London, Houghton Library, University Harvard, Library of Congress, Leiden University, KITVL, Holland, and the Perpustakaan Nasional Indonesia, Jakarta. The book consists of numerous academic papers presented at the regional and international seminars, and also published in international journals and as chapters of books. Besides academic papers, the excerpt of play titled Munsyi, sketches, poetry, and song, and interviews by the national media are also included. This book provides new insights into Abdullah's life, backgrounds, writings, his influences and legacies and the reactions and thought-provoking views of the western and eastern scholars on Abdullah. The book is indeed the key reference for studies on Munsyi Abdullah, Malay literature, and the history of Singapore, Malaysia, and colonialism in Southeast Asia.

Buku ini meliputi dua jilid dan dihasilkan berdasarkan kajian penulis yang memanfaatkan sumber primer yang belum diselidiki dari beberapa arkib mubaligh di SOAS, London, Perpustakaan Houghton, Universiti Harvard, Library of Congress, Universiti Leiden, KITVL, Holland, dan Perpustakaan Nasional Indonesia, Jakarta. Buku ini mengandungi beberapa kertas kerja akademik yang telah dibentangkan di seminar-seminar serantau dan antarabangsa, serta diterbitkan dalam jurnal-jurnal internasional dan bab-bab dalam buku. Selain daripada kertas kerja akademik, petikan skrip teater berjudul Munsyi, sketsa, puisi, lirik lagu dan beberapa wawancara bersama media nasional turut disertakan. Buku ini memberikan sorotan baharu terhadap riwayat Abdullah, latar belakang, karya-karya, pengaruh dan legasi, dan reaksi serta pandangan kritis oleh sarjana Barat dan Timur tentang Abdullah. Buku ini adalah rujukan penting dalam kajian tentang Munshi Abdullah, Kesusasteraan Melayu dan sejarah Singapura, Malaysia serta kolonialisme di Asia Tenggara.
