The Name of Brooke: The End of White Rajah Rule in Sarawak
Nearly four decades after the events described, Reece is able to take a reasonably dispassionate look at what happened at the end of World War II when Vyner Brooke, the last of the white rajahs of Sarawak, ceded the territory to the British Government. His account starts with the state of the Brooke administration immediately before the war, the growth of a Sarawakian political consciousness and the wranglings between the British and the Brookes in the immediate post war period. 331 pages with a bibliography and index.
