This paper focuses on the confrontation between foreign plantation firms and the
Malaysian state under the New Economic Policy since 1970. Using company archive
material from one firm, United Plantations, which successfully established a new modus vivendi, the paper compares this case with several others for which professional business histories are also now available, and for which outcomes were different.
