Perak:  The Abode of Grace:

A Study of an Eighteenth Century Malay State

Barbara Watson Andaya

Eighteenth century history of the Malaay peninsula had not been particularly well researched before the writing of this book as it was considered to be a period when little of note was happening before the arrival of the British at the end of the century. Andaya's work sets out to show that this was very far from the case. In fact Perak and a few of the other states were beginning to experience their first glimpses of autonomy as they negotiated their way through weakening pressures from external forces to which they had been subject in the past. 444 pages The contents include -

  • I - The Background,
  • II - The Lessons of the Past: Perak and its Neighbours,
  • III - The Return of the Dutch East India Company,
  • IV - The First Years of the Dutch Allaiance,
  • V - Sultan Iskandar and the Dutch Alliaiance,
  •  VI - The Reign of Sultan Iskandar as Described in the Misa Melayu,
  • VII - The Testing of the Allaiance,
  • VIII - A New Diplomacy 1765-68,
  • IX - The Years of Reassessment, 1769-73,
  • X - Eight Troubled Years, 1773-1781,
  • XI The Final Years of the Dutch Allaiance. There are also appendices, a glossary, a bibliography as well as maps.
