9781845114237: Rebellion in Brunei: The 1962 Revolt, Imperialism, Confrontation and Oil (International Library of Twentieth Century History)

Brunei has long been associated with massive oil resources and the stability that its wealth can guarantee.  But little is known of the revolt of 1962 which might have changed the fortunes of the sultanate and the fate of South East Asia.
 
This is the first comprehensive history of the Brunei Rebellion, the trigger for the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation of the 60s and of critical importance in understanding the history of the region.
 
The revolt of 1962 was a small armed uprising in support of a Borneo Federation consisting of Brunei, Sarawak and North Borneo.  It opposed the Malaysian Federation, seen as a buttress of British and Western imperial interest.  In a period of great tension between the West and the Communist world, China viewed the rebellion as a national liberation war and it was quickly suppressed by the British Emergency Force.  But although the rebellion itself was short-lived, the consequences for the region's international relations within Asia and with the West  - especially given Brunei's emergence as a significant oil-producer - were far-reaching.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co Ltd., United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Brunei has long been associated with massive oil resources and the stability that its wealth can guarantee. But little is known of the revolt of 1962 that might have changed the fortunes of the sultanate and the fate of Southeast Asia. In theory, Brunei is a constitutional sultanate, but in practice it is an absolute monarchy. Since the 1962 rebellion, a state of emergency has been in force and the Sultan has ruled by decree. It is a small state in a region dominated by the superpower of China and its size is a significant factor in determining the country s policy towards defence and security - territorially, politically and economically.This is the first comprehensive history of the Brunei Rebellion, which was the trigger for the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation of the 1960s and of critical importance in understanding the history of the region. Harun Abdul Majid explores the turmoil throughout Southeast Asia that was the backdrop to the rebellion and analyses how Brunei not only survived but actually emerged from this turbulent period as a stronger and more coherent political state. Among other issues, he asks: how did events affect the position of the Sultan and the people of Brunei? How did the relationship with the United Kingdom evolve? And what happened next?The revolt of 1962 was a small, armed uprising in support of a Borneo Federation consisting of Brunei, Sarawak and North Borneo.
