Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents a chronological list of Kings of Kandy 1591?1815 and Dutch Governors of Ceylon 1640?1796. The primary focus of the book The Adaptable Peasant: Agrarian Society in Western Sri Lanka under Dutch Rule, 1740-1800 is the peasant social formation in the western maritime possessions of the Dutch United East India Company (VOC). The book focuses on the studies pertaining to the period of Dutch rule in Sri Lanka. When we consider the contributions by Sri Lankan scholars, we can identify several general orientations. The most favourite themes are the political, military and administrative aspects. In terms of the encounter between colonial powers and indigenous elements, the major emphasis has been on Dutch relations with the Kandyan Kings.
