Rajah Charles Brooke: Monarch of All He Surveyed

£9.99

Product description

In 1841 James Brooke became Rajah of Sarawek, establishing a European dynasty that was to rule this Bornean state for a hundred years. His story is well known but his nephew and heir, Charles, the Second Rajah, has remained an obscure figure, except to the specialist historian.
In the course of four years' research on the history of Northern Borneo in the nineteenth century, the author has studied all the known source material on this fascinating figure. This is the first full-length biography of Rajah Charles Brooke and it has been written with the non-specialist reading public in mind. However, it combines a knowledge of the latest scholarly findings, in a variety of related fields, with careful and original analysis of the primary sources.
