Deals, Datus and Dayaks: Sarawak and Brunei in the Making of Malaysia
Michael Leigh arrived to commence his research in Sarawak in December 1962, at a turbulent time just after the Brunei revolt had been suppressed and shortly before the start of armed Indonesian confrontation. He has maintained an active interest as an analyst of the processes of political and economic change, and has authored some 60 books, chapters and articles on Sarawak and greater Malaysia, in particular The Rising Moon: Political Change in Sarawak (1974), Council Negri Sarawak: Malaysia’s Oldest Legislature (1992) and Mapping the Peoples of Sarawak (2002). He has held the position of Professor at the Universities of Sydney, Melbourne and UNIMAS, where he established the Institute of East Asian Studies.
