The Myth of the Lazy Native is Syed Hussein Alatas' widely acknowledged critique of the colonial construction of Malay, Filipino and Javanese natives from the 16th to the 20th century. Drawing on the work of Karl Mannheim and the sociology of knowledge, Alatas analyses the origins and functions of such myths in the creation and reinforcement of colonial ideology and capitalism.

The book constitutes in his own words: 'an effort to correct a one-sided colonial view of the Asian native and his society' and will be of interest to students and scholars of colonialism, post-colonialism, sociology and South East Asian Studies.
