Administration in the Federated Malay States 1896-1920

---

Jagjit Singh Sidhu

This work's main emphasis is how the gradual creep of British imperial influence from the Treaty of Federation of 1896 to the appointment of Sir Lawrence Guillemard as Governor and High Commissioner in 1920 began to affect the lives of the peninsula's inhabitants, principally the Malays. At the time the book was written it filled a gap in historiography of this period. The preface contains a succinct review of historical writings about the peninsula. 227 pages divided into the following chapters -

  • I - The Setting,
  • II - Federation and the Resident-General,
  • III - The Federal Council, 1909-1920,
  • IV - The Diminution of the Malay Aristocracy,
  • V - The Malay under British Rule
  • together with appendices of important documents governing the expansion of British rule and a bibliography.
