About the book (from jacket flap):

This volume collects together a number of papers concerned with British policy towards South-East Asia in the 19th century, and deals with the Malaysian region, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodies, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Besides pointing out the significance of the decisions made by British policy-makers, the colourful personalities of these decision-makers, such as those of Raffles, James Brooke and other lesser-known figures, are highlighted.
