Book Description SIRD, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia, 2013. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Singapore is almost as equally well known for being an 'economic miracle' as for being a state where dissent has historically been drastically circumscribed. Operation Coldstore was, arguably, one of the more ruthless operations to remove dissenters from circulation on charges of communism and subversion. Subsequently the Government's version of events has rarely been allowed to be challenged. This collection of accounts, a mixture of recollections of the ex-detainees and academic critiques of the Government's version of history, seeks to set the record straight. 542 pages including an index and a comprehensive list of detainees imprisoned in Singapore from 1950 to 2013.
