L.A. Mills' incomparable classic British Malaya 1824-1867 was first published in 1925, an original and extraordinarily perceptive work by a relatively young scholar on what was then one of the British Empire's most profitable colonial possessions. It was reissued in the JMBRAS in 1960 and since then it has been unavailable for many years until this reprint was once again brought forth. One of the first serious historical works on colonial Malaya, it is a landmark study of the development of British influence through the Straits Settlements of Singapore, Malacca and Penang on the Malay Peninsula, in the middle years of the nineteenth century. The study concludes in 1867, the year in which the administration of the Straits Settlements was transferred from the India Office to the Colonial Office.
