The British in Malaya, 1880-1941: The Social History of a European Community in Colonial South-East Asia
John G Butcher
While literature on colonial Malaya is awash with studies on the three main ethnic groups, Malay, Chinese and Indians, there is very little academic literature on how the colonisers, the British, functioned as a community. Butcher seeks to redress that imbalance by analysing the this group's accepted way of living and their interaction with other communities in the country. Good Hardback in a Good Dust Jacket. First Edition. 292 pages with black and white plates, appendices, glossaries, maps, tables and an index.
