內容簡介


By 1945, Everywhere One Looked In The Far East The British Empire Was Being Openly Questioned Or Was Failing Outright. Yet In The Previous Century, The British Had Been The Pre-Eminent Imperial Power From Weihaiwei To North Borneo.

Reading Colonies: Property And Control Of The British Far East Investigates How The British Held On For So Long. Rent Control Legislation, And Other Measures Of Property Law Such As Land Improvement Opportunities, Are Nominated As Key Tools Used To Frustrate Decolonization In Most Eastern Colonies. British Colonial Administrations Tried Long And Hard To Inhibit The Dialectical Discord Between Their Colonial Hierarchism And Local Forms Of Nationalism With The Prompts And Plaudits Of Property Policy. In Cases Where Indigenous Landlordism Masqueraded As Patriotism, Independence Came Quickly (Ceylon And Burma). Where Public Housing Established Itself As A Key Post-War Plank Of Social Policy, Freedom From British Rule Was A More Gradual Affair (British Malaya And Hong Kong).

This Study Concludes That British Colonial Regimes Did Not Offer A Share Of Their Industrial Modernity To Stay At The Apex Of Political Power, But Readily Adjusted Old-Style Landlordism To Keep Nationalist Usurpers At Bay.
