A Flourish for the Bishop & Brooke's Friend Grant:
Two Studies in Sarawak History 1848-68
The accounts of Charles Grant, one of Rajah Brooke's civil servants, and Francis McDougall, an Anglican missionary, of a turbulent period during the Rajah's rule. Although both men did not have much time for each other they were united in being critical of James Brooke's decision to prefer Charles Brooke, James' eventual successor, to the Charles' elder brother, John. Both accounts also highlight the deterioration of James Brooke's character towards the end of his rule. 284 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
