Sheds new light on the hitherto neglected years of the Emergency (1955-58) demonstrating how it was British propaganda which decisively ended the shooting war in December 1958. The study argues for a concept of 'propaganda' that embraces not merely 'words' in the form of film, radio and leaflets but also 'deeds'.

About the Author:

KUMAR RAMAKRISHNA is Associate Professor and Head of the Centre of Excellence for National Security at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore. He has authored and co-authored several books and journals including Emergency Propaganda: The Winning of Malayan Hearts and Minds 1948-1958 (RoutledgeCurzon, 2002) and After Bali: The Threat of Terrorism in Southeast Asia (World Scientific Publishing Company, 2004).

Review:

'Kumar is able - in an outstandingly well-researched, well-argued and well-structured book - to offer a persuasive critique of the conventional perspective ... the book is required reading for historians of Malaya and for those whose task is to counter insurgents, guerillas and terrorists.' - The International History Review

'This painstakingly researched study of propoganda in the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960) should be of interest to historians of insurgency in general as well as of propoganda. It is admirable not only for its range, and its richly textured use of sources, but also for its conceptualisation of propoganda.' - Southeast Asian Studies
