MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume . . . provides a valuable introduction to the oil-rich, smallest nation in Southeast Asia. * American Reference Books Annual *
There is a lot to like about Scarecrow's various Historical Dictionaries series. The books are written by experts in the area or country that is covered. All contain well-written brief histories of the country and chronologies that, though they cover historical time periods, heavily feature more recent events. Brief A-Z entries cover the main people, politics, social issues, foreign affairs, institutions, and policies that make the country unique. Extensive bibliographies are divided into several general subject areas....The State of Brunei Darussalam (darussalam means "abode of peace") is a small Islamic sultanate located on the island of Borneo, surrounded by Malaysia. It may surprise some readers of Historical Dictionary of Brunei Darussalam to learn that U.S.-Brunei relations go back to 1850, when the governments signed a treaty of peace, friendship, and commerce. Brunei may be known to many simply as the home of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, one of the richest individuals in the world (his entry in the dictionary provides details of his spending habits) in addition to being the ruler of the country. All university libraries as well as larger public libraries will be well served. * Booklist, July 2010 *
