Riassunto: From its beginnings in the late eighteenth century, the vibrant colonial port of Penang attracted a diverse range of peoples, enabled pioneering commercial enterprises, and fomented inter-ethnic collaboration and inter-cultural borrowings. The island came to be known as the "Pearl of the Orient", and for many travellers it was their first port of call in Southeast Asia. In the early nineteenth century, Singapore displaced Penang in international trade, but the island remained a major focus of regional trade. For this reason, the story of Penang's relations with the Malay Peninsula and other parts of Southeast Asia reveal a great deal about conditions within the region.

This collection discusses the personal networks that have linked prominent individuals in Penang with neighbouring areas, and then considers the position of the island as a whole within the Southeast Asian region. Specifically, the authors write about local entrepreneurs, mutual help associations, and cross border trading and political networks, and aspects of how the cosmopolitan population of the island negotiated the transition from British colony to Malaysian state.

About the Author: YEOH Seng Guan is Senior Lecturer at the School of Arts and Social Sciences, Monash University, Malaysia Campus.

LOH Wei Leng was formerly a Professor in the History Department, University of Malaya.

KHOO Salma Nasution is a Penang-based writer, publisher, social historian, heritage advocate and cultural entrepreneur.

BRAND NEW, Penang and Its Region: The Story of an Asian Entrepot, Yeoh Seng Guan, Loh Wei Leng, Salma Nasution Khoo, Neil Khor, From its beginnings in the late eighteenth century, the vibrant colonial port of Penang attracted a diverse range of people and encouraged pioneering commercial enterprises. A place of inter-ethnic collaboration and inter-cultural borrowings, the island came to be known as the 'Pearl of the Orient' and for many travellers was the first port of call in Southeast Asia. In the nineteenth century, Singapore displaced Penang in long distance trade, but the island remained a major focus of regional trade. For this reason, the story of Penang's relations with the Malay Peninsula and neighbouring territories reveals a great deal about conditions in Southeast Asia. This collection discusses the personal networks that linked prominent individuals in Penang with neighbouring areas, and considers the position of the island within the Southeast Asian region.
