The Struggle for Malaysian Independence chronicles the historical events that led to the independence of the country. It was written based on the experiences of one of the legendary figures in the Royal Malaysian Police Force, Dato’ J.J. Raj (Jr), who lived and survived through the many difficult phases that this young nation had to encounter. Throughout his service in different parts of the country, the author had been in the thick of action confronting the conflicts that threatened a nation in transition.
This book will be a valuable addition to the existing historical literature of Malaysian struggle for independence. Malaysians, especially the young generation, will be able to appreciate the contribution of many unsung heroes who sacrificed their life to give the country the freedom it craved for. This book also offers the author’s personal views and accounts of many important events that occurred during the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960) as well as other post-independence incidents such as the bloody riots of May 13, 1969.
