The British in Malaya:
The First Forty Years, 1786-1826
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
