Rajah Charles Brooke, Monarch of All he Surveyed
Colin N Crisswell
In this first full length Biography of the second rajah of Sarawak, the author highlights Brooke's role in developing the administrative framework which consolidated the family's rule. Unusually for a Victorian, Charles Brooke was unconvinced of the imperative of imposing the 'benefits' of a Western civilisation on his subjects, but rather attempted to preserve traditional life more so than his compatriots elsewhere in Southeast Asia. x & 253 pages.
