The British in Malaya:

The First Forty Years, 1786-1826

 ---

KC Tregonning

Tregonning's study of Britain's early years on the Malay peninsula leads him to believe that, at this stage, the main purpose of the push eastwards from India was to secure the China trade. The East India Company was more interested in ports rather than exploiting the hinterland. For most of this period, Penang was at the epicentre before ceding its role to Singapore. 186 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page for further details.
