Communalism and the Political Process in Malaya

-

KJ Ratnam

The period of study concerns the post war period until around about 1960 since, as Ratnam points out in his preface, the onset of the war marked the first real political awakening in the country, especially for non-Malays, who were no longer as transient as they were before the war. This resulted, obviously, in a counter response from the Malay population. Although the study does not claim to draw upon much political theory from elsewhere, but rather concentrates on the Malayan case, Ratnam draws some conclusions which may, at least, prompt questions useful for similar studies elsewhere. 248 pages. Chapters include

  • 1 - The Problem of National Unity,
  • II - Constitutional Government,
  • III - Citizenship,
  • IV - Special Position of the Malays; Relegion and Language,
  • V - Party Politics,
  • VI - The 1955 and 1959 General Elections &
  • VII - Communalism and the Political Process.
  • There are also three appendices dealing with Federation proposals, Cases of Non-Communal Voting & Biographical Notes. There is also a bibliography and an index.
