About This Book

An introductory essay traces Sarawak's unusual administrative pattern from the 1841 advent of James Brooke, the first Rajah and through the transitional and colonial post-Brooke period 1946-63 until it became independent and incorporated with Malaysia. These nine informal memoirs are by local-born officers of the Sarawak Administrative Service whose training and careers started during the colonial period. Many acute insights are offered into the lives and problems of Sarawak's diverse population as well as into the thinking of a remarkable group of men who were required to deal with an immerse variety of demands often unforeseen and in the remotest places. With black-and-white photographs, glossary, sketch map and index.
