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'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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
