As Tom Harrisson, the Director of the Sarawak Museum, points out in his preface, histories of modern Sarawak tend to be written from the point of view of the Brooke family, which ruled the area for almost a century. Rawlins, after twelve years there, attempts to take a more dispassionate view leaving it for the readers, mainly school children, to make up their minds. Although this was a successful school text book, its simple clear style is as good an introduction as any to Sarawak's recent history. 256 pages.
