Reviews

'Dr. Saunders...provides many insights and, as an introduction to the state-of-the-art, it would be very difficult to improve upon A History of Brunei.' - Asian Affairs'He (Dr. Saunders) provides a fine exposition of Brunei's early history and the source materials upon which it is based. He makes clear what he regards as factual, but does not neglect alternative interpretations. He demonstrates why certain myths have come to be believed in the sultanate and gives reasons for rejecting the historicity of those beliefs.' - A.V.M Horton , Asian Affairs
