May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969

---

Kua Kia Soong

 

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 spontaneous. Instead the author postulates that they were the result of darker political maneuverings 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 selected bibliography. New paperback. Reprint  Originally published in 2007
