In the initial years, commerce and finance were paramount. The seeds of these commercial activities had been planted initially in the days of the East India Company but later, and more importantly, by individual merchant firms, supported by credit from London. These merchants were the driving force of British investment and development on the Malay Peninsula. While the contributions of the Malays, Indians and, especially, the Chinese to economic development should not be under-rated, in the period under review, their activities were steered and monitored by the British.
This book presents an original and coherent account of British Enterprise in Singapore and Malaya in an important historical period and includes substantial new material from primary records of merchant firms and banks which will be of great interest to students, professionals as well as the general public.
The Nebraska Constitution is one of the oldest state constitutions in America. It has been amended nearly 200 times, with important changes including a unicameral legislature. The constitutional history recounted in the first part of the volume describes fiery debates over major issues even today--such as personal property tax, clemency, cases the state can take to court, reimbursement of depositors in failed savings and loan companies, to mention just a few. The full text of the constitution and its detailed analysis with new interpretations over the years is presented for easy reference and careful study.
