A People's History of Malaya: The New Emergency 
Asoka Guikon

Most of the history in English of Malaya, now Malaysia, has been written from a colonial standpoint. This book, a singeing attack on colonialism, tells a very different story, covering a period from pre-colonial times until about 20 years after independence. The book gained notoriety for a photograph of a smiling British soldier holding the decapitated head of an insurgent during the Malayan 'Emergency.' Very Good Paperback, First Edition. 165 pages with some cartoons and black and white photographs and a couple of maps.
