The Protected Malay States 1874-1895
This major study of the residential system, where sultans ran their states, but were 'advised' by British residents, covers the period from the beginning of active British involvement on the Malayan peninsula until the establishing of the Federated Malay States, under a more centralised administration. Sadka looks at the purpose, theory and practice of the residency system mainly as it affected Perak and Selangor, the initial members, and later Negeri Sembilan and Pahang. 464 pages.

Condition: Very Good. Hardback in a similar dust jacket. The dust jacket has a very small amount of wear, but is now protected by a plastic jacket. A front end paper and a rear end paper is heavily tanned and a previous owner's name is neatly stamped on the front end paper. The text block has minor spotting. Otherwise the binding is tight, the text is clear and there is minimal tanning throughout. Not a bad copy at all.
