The Master of Penang

Andrew Barber
Description
The Master of Penang is a novel about the true life of David Brown - a Scottish lawyer, merchant-adventurer, planter, and one of the early pioneers in the East India Company's settlement of Penang. From his arrival in 1800 on an East Indiaman, he pursued a rich and vivid life and established a company that would play a central role in Penang life until the Japanese occupation of 1941. In fictional terms, this is Brown's story.


Andrew Barber is a Kuala Lumpur-based consultant and is the author of a number of books on colonial Malaya and Penang. He was formerly a British diplomat and is a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society.
