This monograph was adapted from the Masters Thesis of the author, who later developed into a noted historian of the region. (This appears to be his first publication.) He set himself a difficult task, i.e. trying to report in a balanced way on the changes in lifestyle of the Bajau people, when his primary source of information was records of the imperial power that forced these changes. He was aided to a certain extent by living amongst the Bajau people for two years so that he was able to draw on what was left of the community's oral history of the period.  Very Good Hardback 110 pages.
