However, like too many books of this period, it takes history as beginning around about 1400 AD. In the preface the author puts up a bit of a weak defence as to why he didn't start this history earlier. 364 pages.The contents include the following chapters -

  • 4 - Bugis Influence in the Malay States in the 18th century,
  • 5 - The English East India Company's Settlement at Penang (1770-1805),
  • 6 - Malacca (1795-1824) and Singapore (1819-1824),
  • 7 - Siam, the Malay States and the Straits Settlements (1817-1863),
  • 8 - The Malay States in the mid 19th century,
  • 9 - British Intervention in the Malay States (1874),
