The Origins of Malayan Communism
Malayan Communism is best known for its role in undermining the Japanese occupation of Malaya and its role in leading the insurgency that disrupted life in the country in the years immediately after the end of the Second World War. In this book, the author delves into the lesser known aspects of the movement, i.e. its origins, which began as anarcho-communism in the early 20th century and went through many transformations before gaining a foothold in the trade unions in the mid 1930s. The work is based not only on Chinese and English language archives but on interviews with participants in the movement. New Paperback. Reprint. Originally published in 1997. 312 pages.
