First and foremost, I would like to thank the contributors who have worked diligently during the editorial process of this volume. Their contributions made it possible for this collection to accentuate and concretize the developing concern with “epistemic colonization.” I would also like to thank Peivand Zandi who was kind enough to copyedit the entire volume. I am grateful to the editorial and production staff at Brill whose hard work saw this volume reach completion. Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank The Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (IKMAS), The National University of Malaysia (UKM) for their constant support throughout this project.
