The Peasant Robbers of Kedah,
1900-1929: Historical and Folk Perspectives
Cheah Boon Kheng
When originally published in 1988 this book was considered a major contribution to the still scantily documented history of the working class in colonial Malaya. Relying on British records and local sources, Cheah brings to life this lawless period on the borders of British Malaya and Siam. Although The British considered the area 'one of the most lawless and insecure districts,' many contemporaries also saw the robbers as heroes offering a challenge to foreign rule. 162 pages with a glossary, bibliography and index.
