Item description for A Company of Planters: Confessions of a Colonial Rubber Planter in 1950s Malaya by John Dodd...

With true stories and confessions that would make even Somerset Maugham blush, John Dodd has penned a fascinating, and often hilarious, memoir of his life as a colonial rubber planter in 1950s Malaya. When not exploring the Chinese bars and brothels of Penang, there were strikes, riots, snakes, plantation fires and deadly ambushes by Communist terrorists to contend with.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Company of Planters: Confessions of a Colonial Rubber Planter in 1950s Malaya?

interesting personal history  Nov 24, 2007
This book provides an interesting description of parts of life in 1950s Malaysia. It only tangentially touches on the emergency and independence movement. It is based on letters written during that period, and though the text can be slightly dry at times it avoids getting bogged down on some of the social register type details that can ruin similar works. The author's views are presented as they were at the time without any moralizing from a more modern viewpoint. This may offend some people but I'd call it a fairly accurate snapshot of the time and place.
