Drawing on source material from official British archives held at the Public Record Office, this three-part volume documents the course of Anglo-Malayan relations from the fall of Singapore in February 1942 to the achievement of Malayan independence in August 1957. Part three, covering the period between September 1953 and August 1957, reveals how, as the MCP fell back in the shooting-war, the pace of political change increased with the authorities making preparations for federal elections, political parties competing for support and the communists attempting to re-enter legitimate politics. The documents throw new light on relations between the Alliance (of UMNO, MCA and MIC), the Malay rulers and the British, and they show how Tunku Abdul Rahman gained the political initiative and forced the pace of constitutional advance.
