The Story of George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia c. 1780s to c 2000s
Ooi Keat Gin
George Town, the capital of Penang state, is where the British established their first foothold in Malaya by relying on the strengths of a mix of labour and entrepreneurs from Asia and beyond. As a result George Town to this day is known as a multicultural leader in the country. Although this book has the appearance of a coffee table book, Professor Ooi, one of the country's leading historians, has produced the first comprehensive and authoritative history, in accessible form, of the city this century. New Paperback. First Edition. 197 pages with many colour and black and white photographs and an index.
