As a matter of fact, many historical accounts of Malaya/Malaysia are written and published in the Chinese language. The Chinese-language knowledge and intellectual infrastructures in Malaya/Malaysia, mostly privately-funded, have also been translating many history books on Malaya/Malaysia from originals in the Malay and English languages. Nowadays, almost all the Chinese-language journalists and editors are bilingual while many younger ones use three languages everyday.

Yes, there is a pretty lively Chinese language book publishing industry in Malaysia, everything from frivolous to good, solid subjects.

Unfortunately, my Chinese is only so-so, its not my preferred language when it comes to reading serious material.
A bit sad, really, but almost all of my education on more advanced topics was in the Anglo-Saxon tongue.
