International Personality of the Malay Peninisula:
A Study of the International Law of Imperialism
Alfred P Rubin
This is a revised M.Litt thesis presented by the author to the University of Cambridge and published in Malaya at the suggestion of Victor Purcell. Rubin, a lawyer, is fascinated by the legal justification for European, Malay and Thai actions in their rivalry from the Malacca Sultanate to the late nineteenth century by which time the British had consolidated their position on the peninsula. As Rubin states in his preface, 'the emphasis throughout is on the theoretical justifications advanced for political action rather than on the practical economic or other motives for action.' 327 pages with an index and bibliography.
