The first ever monograph that was published by the MBRAS in 1964 was a sociological study of a Malay village in Johore by veteran politician and academic Dr Syed Husin Ali. Since then, the MBRAS has gone on to publish ground-breaking studies on subjects which were relatively obscure at the time but in which much scholastic activity has taken place since. On this page is a complete list of all MBRAS monographs which have appeared as supplementary publications to the biannual Journal.

It is a matter of much regret to the Society that many of these titles are no longer obtainable now and have consequently become collector's items.
