About this Item

New. This book draws together in a readable, compact and well illustrated format, the important elements of the early history of Penang following the establishment of the first British settlement in Malaya in 1786. Although Penang later became a British colony, Francis Light, the East India Company officer who oversaw the founding of the first major settlement on the island, claimed his principal aim was to set up a trading post. This 159 page book traces how the nature of the settlement changed from being a home for free booters and traders to an important part of the expanding British power in Southeast Asia. Chapters include 1 - The East India Company and Eastern Waters 1601-1786, 2 - 'Prince of Wales Island,' 3 - The Administration of Penang, 4 - Trade and Commerce, 5 - The Peoples of Penang, 6 - The Physical Development of Penang, 7 - Penang and Relations with the Malay Sultanates, 8 - A Crown Colony 1858 and a Bibliography.
