Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969

 

by

Kua Kia Soong

New. The banning of a book or, as in this case, the threat of banning can never be bad for sales. As a result one of the most important works on Malaysian post-independence history has been republished. The significance of the book is that through use of British documents, declassified under the 30 year rule, the author has been able to overturn the myth that the riots were spontaeous. Instead the author postulates that they were the result of darker political manoeuverings within the governing party. 152 pages. The Chapters include -

  • 1 - The Alliance Racial Formula,
  • 2 - The 1969 General Elections,
  • 3 - Record of The Riots,
  • 4 - Foreign Assessments of The Regime Change,
  • 5 - The New Malay Ruling Class.
  • There are also notes and a seclected bibliography.
  • Near Fine Paperback. First Edition
