Introducing Historian Ooi Keat Gin

Ooi Keat Gin is an historian who has written extensively on World War II and its aftermath on Borneo. Among his many works are Rising Sun over Borneo: The Japanese Occupation of Sarawak, 1941-1945 (Springer, 1999), The Japanese Occupation of Borneo, 1941-45 (Routledge, 2010) and Post-War Borneo, 1945-1950: Nationalism, Empire and State Building (Routledge, 2013).

I recently made this video of a conversation that anthropologist Victor T. King had with Ooi Keat Gin about his career and work, and I share it here with anyone who is interested in learning about this historian and his many writings.
