About This Book

Victor Purcell died in 1965 shortly after retiring from his teaching post in Cambridge. This 1970 memorial volume is a tribute to the wide range of his interests by friends, colleagues and former pupils. It aims primarily to acknowledge his work as a scholar. The subject-matter might be described in general terms as insurrection, immigration and trade in China and South-east Asia. Interest is concentrated on the Chinese people (whom he so much admired), and on their more recent history and civilisation (which were central pre-occupations throughout his life). The list of distinguished contributors includes Owen Lattimore, Joseph Needham, W. E. Cheong, Graham W. Irwin, and Wang Gungwu.
