The White Rajahs...Myths Retold:
The Massacre of the Bau Hakkas
The Brooke's rule of Sarawak did not go entirely unchallenged. This book brings to light the events surrounding an uprising by Chinese (Hakka) miners during the time of James Brooke. Following considerable research in records of the time, a veteran Sarawak journalist passionately tells a very different story than the sanitised version published at the time. This was probably the largest massacre of colonial subjects in the region before the advent of the Second World War. 193 pages with maps and black and white photographs.
