4049 Spruit, Ruud THE LAND OF THE SULTANS : An Illustrated History of Malaysia
Amsterdam The Pepin Press 1995 Paperback Fine with no dust jacket 
17 x 24 cm.; pg. 144 ; Originally published in 1989. Map, introduction, numerous black-and-white and color illustrations. "In part due to its strategic location, Malaysia has for ages been an important link in the ancient maritime trade routes from Europe, Arabia, Persia and India to China and Japan. The multitude of international contacts has made the country the recipient of influences from many diverse sources, resulting in a rich and uncommonly mixed culture and an eventful history. In THE LAND OF THE SULTANS the author narrates Malaysia's past, drawing not only from Western sources, but also from the colourful SEJARAH MELAYU--the famous Malay chronicles that are a mixture of classical romance and factual description. The result is a text which provides an accurate historical record, as well as an insight into the country's unique culture and customs. "; 9054960159

"The gradual withdrawal of British forces from southern Asia beginning in the late 1960s, and the simultaneous appearance of Soviet naval forces in the same region have focused world attention on the strategic importance of the Indian Ocean area. Among the enduring features of the area are the widely scattered island groups that have served as bases for British and French forces from the early days of the colonial era. Throughout the area people of widely different ethnic backgrounds have been brought together, and they have formed societies that differ substantially from one territory to another. The social, political, and economic factors affecting their lives are described here to the extent that published information permits."
