Post-Mortem on Malaya

-

Virginia Thompson

This book is interesting as it's written by a US academic specialising in Southeastern affairs in the immediate aftermath of the Japanese conquest of Malaya. She doesn't seek to examine the campaign that led to the collapse of British colonial rule, but rather to look prinicipally at British political preparedness. Through a detailed analysis of the methodology of decades of British colonial intervention in Malaya she argues that the British failure in Malaya was the result of the way the British attempted to rule the country and their attitude to its inhabitants. 323 pages including a bibliography and index.
