Published: 2015
Selected and introduction by Badriyah Haji Salleh and Loh Wei Leng. This selection of articles provide a bird's eye view of Penang's past. However, if the articles read alongside available writing on the history of Penang, and the sizable corpus of recent literature on colonial and imperial history, this reprint should serve to whet the appetite of those seeking a more nuanced understanding on a number of broad themes, including but not confined to:

  1. the British imperial enterprise and the incorporation of their Southeast Asian settlement into the world economy as suppliers of raw materials and importers of western manufactures,

  2. the agency of local actors in the face of Anglo-Dutch rivalry, and

  3. the myriad consequences of imperialism - political, economic, social and cultural. Of the three themes, the last two subjects are in keeping with shifts in historiographical perspective, from metropolitan concerns and colonial administrators towards a focus on local actors and initiatives in imperial history and from economic and commercial aspects towards social history and cultural issues in historical research.
