This study of the final stage of British colonial involvement in South East Asia begins with the arrival of British troops in Indonesia as liberators in 1945-6 and culminates with the 1963-6 period of confrontation between Malaysia and Indonesia. Greg Poulgrain seeks to show how confrontation with Indonesia was deliberately provoked to facilitate the inclusion of Sarawek in Malaysia and to bring down Sukarno. At the crux of this policy was the Brunei revolt of 1962. In examining the political situation of Brunei before the instigation and the reactions of Indonesia at the time, this text aims to vindicate the role of Brunei's A.M. Azahari who had anticipated a federation of the three Borneo states headed by the Sultan of Brunei as constitutional monarch.
