Chinese New Villages in Malaya:
A Community Study
New villages were set up from 1950 onwards as a way of keeping control of rural populations who might provide support for the Communist insurgents. Over a million people, one seventh of the population, were displaced as a result. This work on the effects of the policy is based on four years research between 1957 and 1961 when the author lived amongst new village residents. 278 pages with a bibliography, index black and white photographs, maps and tables.
