In what is today Malaysia, the British established George Town on Penang Island in 1786 and encouraged Chinese merchants and laborers to settle there. The book analyzes the relations between the Chinese and British and between the Chinese and Malays, focusing on the role of temples and religion in organising Chinese social life.
