Synopsis

19 fascinating tales and sketches from the time in the early 20th century when Malaysia was a protectorate of the British Empire, written by the British Resident and later Governor Hugh Clifford.

Sir Hugh Charles Clifford, GCMG, GBE (5 March 1866 – 18 December 1941) was a British colonial administrator who joined the civil service in the Straits Settlements and later transferred to the British Protectorate of the Federated Malay States.

Clifford arrived in Malaya in 1883, aged 17. He first became a cadet in the State of Perak. During his twenty years in Perak, Clifford socialised with the local Malays and studied their language and culture. He served as British Resident at Pahang, 1896–1900 and 1901–1903, and Governor of North Borneo, 1900–1901.
