Borneo People

£17.99

Product description

This is a book about Sarawak by a European visitor who travelled the length and breadth of the country and who met Sarawakians of all backgrounds and walks of life. But this is no ordinary travel book nor was the author any ordinary traveller. He was in fact no less than the King's representative who was making himself known to the newest subjects in Britain's colonial empire. Written in the mid-1950s, Malcolm MacDonald's account of his getting to know Sarawak and its inhabitants shows the country as it appeared to a highly sympathetic, if at times slightly patronising, observer at a period of radical change.

Condition: Shelfwear and creasing to cover. Severe foxing to foreedge, pastedowns and FEPs, but pages clean and clear and binding tight. Signature of previous owner on FEP.
