European colonies worldwide were a magnet for both the enterprising and those who wanted to escape life at home. Families of Armenians, who had a troubled history of disruption, settled in Penang for similar reasons. Although they probably never numbered more than thirty at any time, they left their mark, most notably with the founding of The Eastern & Oriental Hotel. In this booklet Nadia Wright, an authority on the community in Southeast Asia, gives the reader some background to Armenian life in Penang and the more notable members of this forgotten, but significant, minority. New Paperback. First Edition. 78 pages with 63 black and white and colour photographs, tables and maps. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
