British Colonial Rule

and

The Resistance of the Malay Peasantry, 1900-1957

-

Donald M Nonini

When one reads the works of British scholars of the imperial period describing the history and culture of the Malay community, one does not often gain the impression that the Malay peasantry were anything other than happy with their lot. However during the post independence period much scholarship has sought to bring to light what could be termed as "the people's history" of colonial rule. This work is a significant contribution to that body of scholarship gathering in all the threads of such scholarship so as to gain new insights. 237 pages with chapters on

  • The Precolonial Period,
  • The Emergence of Capitalism 1874 - 1920: Colonial State Expansion and the Peasant Village Community,
  • The Emergence of Capitalism 1874-1920: Peasant Resistance,
  • State Power and Rubber Cultivation,
  • Colonial Capitalism Triumphant,
  • Vicissitudes of Domination: The Japanese Occupation and the Postwar Years & Changes in Malay Villages 1945-1957.
  • There are also Notes, a Bibliography, an Index, a map and three sets of tables.
