Blood and the Soil:
 A Portrait of Dr Ong Chong Keng 

Pamela Ong Siew Im

The book's title illustrates the schizophrenic tussle that besets many migrants and their descendants. Where do their loyalties lie, with their new homeland or with those of their blood, i.e. elsewhere? This issue became particularly relevant in British Malaya when Communist guerillas, mainly of Chinese descent, fought for control of the country. The subject of this biography saw no distinction, i.e. he belonged to Malaya, though racially classed as Chinese. For that stance Ong paid with his life. Very Good Hardback in a Similar Dust Jacket. First Edition. Signed with a Dedication by the Author. 260 pages. with an index
