Ownership and Control in the Malayan Economy
This book was written by Puthucheary during the second of his three bouts of imprisonment for political activism by the Singaporean Government, both before and after Singapore became a self-governing state. He explains how the organisation of labour under British rule militated against racial co-operation and why the majority of Malayans remained poor in a country rich in natural resources, thus making the book still relevant to the understanding of Malaysia today. Very Good Hardback in a Fair Dust Jacket First Edition. 187 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
