About This Book

Selected and introduction by Badriyah Haji Salleh and Loh Wei Leng, this selection of articles provide a bird's eye view of Penang's past. It covers broad themes such as the British imperial enterprise and the incorporation of their Southeast Asian settlement into the world economy as suppliers of raw materials and importers of western manufactures; the agency of local actors in the face of Anglo-Dutch rivalry; and the myriad consequences of imperialism - political, economic, social and cultural.
