A Gallery Of Chinese Kapitans
— C.S. Wong’s classic work on overseas Chinese political leadership
in British Malaya

… this admirably useful book … has made available a reservoir of factual material sure to serve both scholars and general readers. Mr Wong is to be commended for the painstaking care with which he has documented his study.
Lea. E. Williams, Brown University (1966)

C.S. Wong’s biographical-anecdotal approach masterfully presents the captivating stories of prominent Chinese Kapitans in the Straits Settlements (Melaka, Penang, and Singapore) and the three northern Malay States (Perlis, Kedah, and Perak). By intertwining the narratives of these influential Chinese leaders with the historical settings and political-economic developments of their time, Wong successfully enhances our comprehension of the significance and roles of the Chinese Kapitans.
Dr Wong Yee Tuan, New Era University College (2024)
