Tales From the South China Seas:
Images of the British in South-East Asia in the Twentieth Century
This book resulted from a BBC radio series where Allen collected the recollections of fifty British men and women who went out East, mainly to Malaya, to seek their fortunes in the 1920s and 1930s. Although some Malaysians were interviewed, the story is told mainly by British expatriates. The book doesn't attempt to deal with the political issues surrounding colonialism but rather with what this mixed group of people made of life in the tropics. 319 pages.
