Red Star Over Malaya:
Resistance and Social Conflict During and After the Japanese Occupation of Malaya, 1941-46
Cheah Boon Keng
New. When it comes to racial conflict in Malaysia, most people immediately think of 13th May 1989 forgetting the far more serious series of racial clashes and killings that took place between Chinese and Malays in the immediate aftermath of the World War II. Politicians have tried to forget about it, but Cheah argues not only that the period is still relevant to understanding Malaysian race issues today, but also shows how the racial strife prevented Malayans being able to seize power from the colonialists as happened in Indonesia and Vietnam at the same time. 375 pages including appendices, notes, a bibliography and an index. There are also tables, figures and some black and white plates. The Book is Divided into two parts -
