The Genesis of Konfrontasi:
Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia, 1945-1965
The formation of Malaysia got off to a rocky start, not least because neighbouring Indonesia wasn't too happy with the name, which previously was applied to the whole Malay Archipelago, being appropriated by them, but also because of territorial rivalry on the island of Borneo. Konfrontasi, or the Confrontation, i.e. armed warfare between both countries was the result. In this book, the author revises several parts of the story, particularly the extent to which British and US interventions both exacerbated and smoothed the situation. New Paperback. Reprint. 335 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
