Industrial Conflict in Malaya: Prelude to the Communist Revolt of 1948 ---
Before the publication of this book, little had been written about the role played by trade unionism in the outbreak of the Communist insurrection after World War II. Here Stenson traces its development from before the war when Chinese and Indian labourers, the majority of industrial workers, began to increase their economic and political bargaining power. He also looks at the legacy of this movement on the subsequent period up to 1969. Very Good Hardback in a Good Dust Jacket. First Edition. 271 pages with a bibliography and an index.
