About This Book

A retired Chief Police Officer in the Royal Malaysian Police Force, with firsthand experience of the many events that paved Malaysia's long road to independence, sets this history in context by first describing the period before and during World War II. This is followed by a chronicle of the rise (and fall) of the Malayan Communist Party, the communist insurgency, town and state elections and the race riots of 1969. The author has made this informal account of Malaysian history personal by including his recollections of memorable personalities and incidents, as well as a large number of black-and-white photographs.
