  • What others have said about this book

    "I am therefore more than grateful to Mr. Dennis De Witt for recounting the more than 400 years history between the Netherlands and Malaysia."
    - Lody Embrechts, Former Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Malaysia.

    "I assure you that you will not be able to find these historical facts nor get a clear picture of 17th, 18thand 19th century Melaka from visiting the numerous museums and talking to local residents, guides or historians. The author’s research into this topic is truly commendable and is presented clearly and objectively. He has packaged his research neatly into this book and saved us from trudging all over the world sifting through tons of dusty and long forgotten archives, documents and old, mouldy books."
    - Linda Phua Sue Lin, Chief Executive Officer, Perbadanan Hang Tuah Jaya.

    "One might think this one is a little too specialised to appeal to all. But knowing more about another race can do no harm. Truly."
    - Su Aziz, NST Life & Times, 6th March 2008

    "You may get your questions answered from this book"
    - TGClub, Book recomendation (http://tgclub.my/bookarchive.htm)

    "I assure you that your book will be made used by me as a reference guide for things Dutch in Malaysia."
    - Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam

    "This is an effort that should be commended which I do in earnestness."
    - Y.B. Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim
