Malaya was first published in 1958. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
As Dr. mills points out, postwar Malaya has, in general, been typical of Southeast Asia politically and economically. This fact makes his account of Malayan developments over the last decade of special significance to anyone concerned about the future of freedom in that part of the world. He traces the changes from the prewar period, when Malaya was under British colonial rule and the bulk of the population was satisfied with its government, to the present, with its political agitation, financial difficulties, and social discontent. He presents a detailed picture of the rubber and tin industries, which are Malaya's basic source of revenue, and assesses their probable status in the future.
