The Making of the Malayan Constitution

-----

Joseph M Fernando

As Fernando points out in his preface, this work is intended to bridge a gap in scholarly writing examining the personal relationships, agendas and deals behind the scenes that led to getting a constitution ready in time for independence in 1957. The omens for achieving something workable were not particularly bright. The encouragement of popular Malayan participation in Government was novel, the country was struggling to come to terms with a new Communist insurrection and racial conflict was being stoked up by several players. The contents include -

  • 1 - The Origins of the Alliance (1948-1952),
  • 2 - The Transformation of the Alliance (1952-1955),
  • 3 - The Alliance Memorandum and the Inter-communal Bargain (1955-1956),
  • 4 - The Reid Commission: A Question of Balance (1956-1957),
  • 5 - The Tripartite Negotiations,
  • 6 - The Alliance, Nationalism and National Identity: Some Theoretical Perspectives &
  • 7 - Conscience of a Nation. 243pages.
  • There are also two appendices, a list of sources & a bibliography as well as an index.
