The Origins of Trade Unionism in Malaya 
Charles Gamba

Trade unionism in Malaysia barely existed before the Second World War. Although the colonial government introduced trade union legislation, it quickly became irrelevant with the arrival of the Japanese. With the restoration of civilian Government in 1946, trade unionism began to take root in the country, but with difficulty because its rebirth coincided with the Malayan 'Emergency.' In this work Gamba traces the successes and failures of the movement until the early 1950s. Very Good Hardback. 511 pages with maps, tables, charts documents, a Foreword by Victor Purcell and an index.

There is an internal  crack in the binding at the the join between the front cover and the rest, but this has not affected the strength of the binding.
