Robert Pringle

In Southeast Asia tribal peoples generally had a favourable relationship with European colonists, who often saw themselves as protectors of the tribes against the more populous and more westernised majority of the colonised. Did the same pattern hold true in Sarawak? In this 410 page book the author sets out to discover how, if at all, the Iban and Brooke relationship was similar. Chapters include -

  • 1 - Land and People,
  • 2 - The Iban Country to the Eve of Brooke Rule,
  • 3- James Brooke and the Iban 'Pirates',
  • 4 - The Malay Plot,
  • 5 - How the Second Rajah Ruled,
  • 6 - Charles Brooke and the Downriver Ibans,
  • 7 - Bantin's Revolt: Charles Brooke and the Upriver Ibans,
  • 8 - Iban Migration and the Rajah's Response &
  • 9 - The Ibans and Others: Communal Relations under Charles Brooke.
  • There are also appendices, a bibliography and an index.
  • New Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 1936
