British Intervention in Malaya 1867-1877
C. Northcote Parkinson
The book concentrates on the ten years when the states of Negeri Sembilan, Perak and Selangor were absorbed into the British Empire. Although at the time colonial officials claimed that they were 'forced' to intervene because of alleged political instability in these states, Parkinson rather sees the British intervention as part of a determined expansion of British rule east of their Indian base. 384 pages with an index and appendices.
