CHIN PENG - Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History

Title: Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History
Description: Media Masters, 2003. First Edition, Softcover. Fine Condition. 9789810486938 A well-kept copy in as new condition. This book is the story of the Communist revolt against the Colonial and elected Governments of Malaya, told by the leader Chin Peng. This insurrection covered 40 years from 1948, though after 1960 it had faded into virtual insignificance. For anyone who has lived in Malaysia, as I have, it is a detailed and fascinating account. Chin Peng emerges as an intelligent, courageous and dedicated person with a certain charm. That cannot be said about the insurrection that he led which was more brutal, murderous and bloody than emerges in the book. The account of course is one-sided, as is to be expected from the title, and it would be a mistake to take this account as a definitive version of what occurred. But the book provides some valuable insights into what motivated Chin Peng and how he managed the insurrection. (Reader review) Illustrated. 492 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Biography & Autobiography; ISBN/EAN: 9789810486938. Inventory No: dscf9365.
