Sulu and Sabah : A Study of British Policy Towards the Philippines and North Borneo from the Late Eighteenth Century 

--- 

Nicholas Tarling


The formation of Malaysia in 1963 did not come without objections from its neighbours, Indonesia and the Philippines, each of which promoted  territorial claims on Sabah, formerly North Borneo. The main purpose of this book is not to dig up historical evidence to support or rebut the Philippine claim, although it is refereed to, but rather to trace the often murky interactions between the European intruders, particularly the British, and the various sultanates in the area from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Very Good Hardback in a Very Good Dust Jacket. 385 pages with two maps and 6 black and white plates. For further details please see the scanned contents page. 

Weight: 1.2 kg Post free within Malaysia, but may incur additional charges when posted elsewhere.

Condition : The dust jacket, now protected in a plastic sleeve, has some curling at the edges. There are faint shadows on the end papers from the dust jacket flaps. Otherwise the binding is tight, text clear and there is no tanning throughout. A very smart copy.
