The Political Economy of Stagnation: British North Borneo under The Chartered Company, 1881-1946
In this comprehensive study of the economy of British North Borneo, while under Chartered Company rule, Massey sets out to discover the nature and causes of the territory's economic growth during this time. The study is significant for many reasons, including, that it fills a gap in the study of the area, the Chartered Company was unlike most other British colonial enterprises in that it was unavowedly commercial and the dissolution of the Company at the end of World War II led to the establishing of Britain's last new colony in Asia. 410 pages with numerous figures and tables
