About Us

Established in 2000 Gerakbudaya is a publisher and distributor of books that embody social awareness, critical & alternative perspectives, and the hidden histories of Malaysia, Southeast Asia & the wider world we live in.


Gerakbudaya is dedicated to the circulation of timely and important books, to breaking down artificial barriers between writers/thinkers and between institutions and the outside world, and generating informed discussions on important issues in Malaysian life by providing different views and fresh insights.


As a publisher Gerakbudaya, alongside its academic imprint Strategic Information and Research Development Centre (SIRD)is committed to publishing original and thought provoking books which produce a critical awareness of Malaysian politics, history, culture and society. Through our Gerakbudaya imprint we publish accessible non-fiction works and a range of fiction titles with political and social themes. Through our SIRD imprint we publish academic works outside of the confines of the university.
