Business, Government, and the End of Empire Malaya, 1942-1957  

---

Nicholas J. White 


Very often retiring colonial governments are accused of leaving behind a pliable neocolonial elite who will not interfere with existing business and other interests of the former colonists. (The model was trenchantly captured in Tarzie Vittachi's 'The Brown Sahib' about post colonial Ceylon). In this work, White looks at the preparations for the independence of Malaya to determine what, if any, safeguards the departing British put in place to ensure their business and other interests faced minimal disruption after independence. He also looks at the strategies employed by British controlled industry in the period. xxii and 331 pages with tables, figures, 20 black and white plates, appendices, a bibliography and an index.
