British Policy in the Malay Peninsula 1880-1910:

The Southern and Central States

-

Eunice Thio

Thio based her research for this book on this period's British Government documents that were gradually released to the public in the 1950s and 1960s. Comparing these sources with private and public sources already available, she has been able to establish the ups and downs and behind the scenes tussles underlying the creeping expansion of British influence on the peninsula. The work covers the states of Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Selangor and Perak where British interests did not have to take note of Thai influence in the northern states. 288 pages with the following contents

  • I - Redemption of the Forward Policy,
  • II - Negri Sembilan,
  • III - Pahang,
  • IV - Informal Advice in Johore,
  • V - The Need for Administrative Reorganisation and the Pahang Problem,
  • VI - The Colonial Office and Proposals for 'a Union of Federation' of the Protected Malay States,
