Rising Sun Over Borneo: The Japanese Occupation of Sarawak, 1941-1945

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Mar 15, 1999 - History - 158 pages
Keat Gin Ooi examines and evaluates the overall impact of the Japanese occupation of Sarawak on the indigenous people, the Chinese inhabitants and the minority European community. How each community responded and reacted to Japanese wartime policies is analyzed to gauge the extent to which occupation can affect, positively or otherwise, the lives and attitudes of the people. Specifically, this book is intended to examine whether the Japanese occupation initiated developments that transformed Sarawak's history. In addition, the book examines whether the Japanese occupation of Sarawak was a turning point in the country's history or whether it was no more than a rude interruption in Sarawak's physical and mental development.
