Abstract

With an introduction on the environment and peoples of Malaysia, the book is divided in eight parts 1- The heritage of the past 2- Melaka and its heirs 3- The demise of the Malay Entrepot State, 1699-1819 4- A new world is created, 1819-1874 5- The making of British Malaya, 1874-1919 6- The functioning of a colonial society, 1919-1941 7- Negociating a new station, 1942-1969 8- Restructuring Malaysia, 1969-2000. It concludes with some themes in Malaysian History. One of these is the region's openness to external influences, an attribute arising from its long and persistent contact with the outside world. Another theme has been the evolving relationship between those who hold power and the people they govern. A related theme is the ongoing stuggle by the center to restrain centrifugal tendencies in outlying territories. - (GL)
