F

illing a major gap in the historiography, Marcus Langdon offers a meticulous reconstruction of the formative period of Penang’s development. A little over two centuries ago Penang had the distinction of being elevated as the fourth most important settlement – a presidency – of the British East India Company’s Indian territories. This fateful decision emerged from powerful historical forces that were reshaping the modern world: the expansion of international trade networks linking Europe with India and China; the intensification of new patterns of migration in Southeast Asia; and growing rivalries between European powers and their impact on local states. Drawing on unrivalled access to original correspondence, reports, newspapers and contemporary accounts, Penang: The Fourth Presidency of India presents an in-depth and compelling narrative of a fascinating story. The first of a three-volume series, the focus here is on the role shipbuilding played, the leading political personalities and two historic buildings that highlight the struggles, successes and failures of the early settlement. Beautifully illustrated with paintings, engravings and maps – many previously unpublished – this volume and those that follow will be the authoritative reference for historians and general readers for generations to come.

Penang: The Fourth Presidency of India 1805 - 1830 Volume One: Ships, Men and Mansions Marcus Langdon Areca Books, 2013 Hardcover, 25.3 cm x 20.6 cm, 519 pages 150+ colour paintings, maps and engravings ISBN 978-967-5719-07-3 Price RM 150

‘Marcus Langdon has become today the preeminent global expert on the British archival materials relating to Penang ... The quality of of this first volume assures us that... [it] will constitute the most detailed early history of Penang ever to be published and will long remain a landmark in Penang historiography.’ - Geoff Wade, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore ‘This monograph is extremely valuable. Marcus Langdon’ s scrupulous use of relatively inaccessible, handwritten primary documents, undertaken with the passion of a committed researcher, is not likely to be replicated’. - Loh Wei Ling, formerly University of Malaya

‘P.G. Lim is a great Malaysian: bold, brilliant, principled and utterly human. Her story is an integral part of our national narrative. Read it.’ - The Star on Kaleidoscope: The Memoirs of P. G. Lim

M

ark Soo distinguished himself as the first Malaysian head of radiology in University Hospital and the first qualified Chinese radiologist in Sydney. As a precocious eight-year old, he witnessed the decisive Battle of Kampar which foreshadowed the Japanese occupation of Malaya. From his traditional Chinese upbringing in Hong Kong and Kampar to modern life in London and Sydney, his vivid account of his first 40 years conveys the sense and sensibility of an overseas Chinese who has lived in interesting times and memorable places.
