The UP Saga

The two main financial arteries of colonial Malaya were the mines and the plantations. In this book the author traces the history of United Plantations from its foundation by a Scandinavian pioneer before the First World War until the present day. Her research was based on well preserved company records and personal accounts of those who took part in and watched the company's development from being rubber planters to concentrating on the oil palm, which remains its main product to this day.
