This compilation, majority of which are my AIP columns not included in the first book, also contains articles written in the mid-80s, and one written during my student days in Tasmania.The title I have chosen for this book, Nothing is Sacred, is by courtesy of a Sasterawan Negara (National Laureate) who, in a critique of my 1987 bilingual poetry collection Sajak-sajak Saleh: Poems Sacred and Profane, wrote: ...to Salleh, nothing is sacred.

In the fully positive sense of the phrase, I have taken what was meant to be a negative judgment as a compliment- it is true that to me both as poet and columnist that nothing is sacred. There is nothing that cannot be looked at from a viewpoint unacceptable to the vast majority in any particular society or culture.There is also another meaning that is beyond the ethical, social, religious and political. The nothing meant now is not always nothing- and this nothing can be sacred.
