From a small settlement located on both sides of the Sarawak River in the southwest of Borneo, Kuching has grown into the capital of Malaysia's largest state, with a number of striking public buildings. In this volume, the author has drawn on colonial and recent writings as well as first-hand experience to paint a picture of the development of the town and the various communities who were so vital in contributing to its distinctive character.
