This book essentially covers the transformation of Malaya from a group of sultanates into a British colony through examining the relationship between the sultans and their new masters. Although in many ways rulers' powers were more circumscribed, Gullick argues that the sultans also acquired new roles which enabled them to last until the present day unlike their colleagues in neighbouring Indonesia. 411 pages.
