No country's history is so well documented yet so poorly understood as that of a former colony. Singapore and Malaysia are particular victims of this historical paradox, and Carl Trocki's account of the history of Johor and Singapore marks a decided advance in Malaysian scholarship. A study of the Temenggongs of Johor, ""Prince of Pirates"" offers an original and highly provocative reinterpretation of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Malaysian history, revealing continuities between pre-colonial and colonial periods that have been obscured by attention given to the European intrusion.This new edition includes a fresh introduction by the author that positions the study within subsequent literature on Malaysian history, the Chinese migration, the opium trade and the history of the British Empire in Asia. It also explains the role the book played in pioneering a number of important initiatives in Malaysian studies.

Book Description NUS Press, Singapore, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Second edition. New. At the time this book was originally published in 1979, it put forward a new theory about the early history of Singapore, i.e. Raffles didn't start from scratch. For at least a century before his arrival the Sultans of Johore and such of their brother sultans in the archipelago who could wriggle out of Dutch control, had been inviting Chinese capitalists and labourers into their domains to farm opium, gambier and pepper and develop business generally. The Johor sultanate was unique in that it recorded in some detail how these Chinese kongsis, or enterprises, operated. Trocki's work is based on research of these archives. 246 pages with the following chapters 1- Prelude to Singapore 1784-1819, 2 - The Prince of Pirates, 1819-25, 3 - The Temenggong of Singapore, 1825-48, 4 - The Temenggong and the Chinese, 1844-1860, 5 - Abu Bakar takes Command, 1860-73, 6 - Johor and the Maharaja, 1873-84, 7 - Johor in 1885: Prospects & 8 - The Transformation of the Maritime Polity.There is also a new introduction for this edition by Trocki, a glossary, bibliography and index as well as two appendices. Weight 0.40 Kg. Postage within Malaysia is free. Seller Inventory # ML632
