Stock ID: 73380
Maps, including two folding, xvi + 233pp, appendices, references, index, occasional marking margins, little pale browning endpapers, worn dustjacket now protected, a sound copy. Looks at the personalities of the leading figures involved in the period of Malayan history immediately preceding the establishment of the Federated Malay States in 1895. Much of the book is devoted to Sir Frederick Weld’s term as Governor and it brings out the clash of personalities between the Colonial Office, the Governor and Residents, and the anxiety which often beset the Colonial Office over some of the actions taken in its name in Malaya. Sir Hugh Low, Clifford and Swettenham (whose vaulting ambition receives somewhat critical treatment) figure prominently, together with some of the lesser-known early Residents and officials, all of whom are subjected to the same searching scrutiny.

Black and white photographic plates, xiii + 230pp, index, bibliography, appendices, hardback. Little shelfwear, a very good copy. “One of the more enduring features of the British colonial heritage in Malaysia is the Civil Service, for despite changes made necessary within the context of a developing independent nation, the character and ethos of the old Service have continued to influence the values of the contemporary bureaucracy, particularly at its highest level. This book traces the emergence of the Malay components in the Administrative Service of the Federated Malay States but the study is more concerned with the social implications of the emergence of the Malay official class than with its administrative experience. It seeks to show that the British acceptance of the idea that the Malays should have some role in the administration of their own country led to efforts to mould selected Malays into ‘suitable’ administrative officers.” Publisher’s description.

x + 212pp, very good in dustjacket.

Less well known are the experiments made by Protestant missionaries of the early 19th century towards creating a basis for mutual understanding between the cultural and scientific traditions of China and the West. The author of this book presents the story of the Anglo-Chinese college at Malacca on the Malaysian peninsula as an example of one such experiment which was carried out while waiting for China to open her doors to the missionaries and merchants of a new century. He discusses not only the educational aims and achievements of the College, but also its wider significance in relation both to the Western approach to China and to the painful process of change and modernization which was eventually to shape the China of today.” Publisher’s description.

To’ Janggut. Legends, Histories and Perceptions of the 1915 Rebellion in Kelantan. CHEAH BOON KHENG.
Stock ID: 99488
Maps, black and white photographic illustrations, xii + 168pp, appendix, notes, bibliography, index, paperback. Deconstructs a legend concerning a 1915 uprising against the British rule led by To’ Janggut, or “Old Longbeard”, in the Malay state of Kelantan. In his account, incidents presented in one version are contradicted, or denied in others, but as the story unfolds the author also reveals unexpected links between different presentations of events. The story of To’ Janggut’s rebellion is recounted in folk tales, newspaper reports and scholarly publications, and the author uses previously classified official reports and hitherto unknown photographs to shed further light on the episode. In his account, incidents presented in one version are revised, contradicted, or denied in others, but as the story unfolds the author also reveals unexpected links between different presentations of events. Although the 1915 rising was a relatively minor incident in a remote part of rural Kelantan, it has captured the imagination of the people of Malaysia. In revisiting the event, Cheah’s purpose is not to establish the facts of what took place but to consider the broader significance of the uprising by reassessing the meanings and functions of history, biography, photography and other genres. The author’s reconstruction of various versions of the incident serves as a form of argumentation, and raises a number of questions. For example, did To’ Janggut rebel against the Sultan, or was he used by the Sultan? Did the Kelantan aristocracy support the Sultan, or were they attempting to unseat him? Was the incident a tax rebellion, or an anti-colonial rising? In the end, the reader is left to ponder which version (if any) can be said to represent historical truth.
