Preface

Hard cover, 278 pages, this book refers to a wholesale application of a primary method of counter-insurgency, where over ONE MILLION persons in Malaya were regrouped or resettled in the early fifties, to rupture the links between the Malayan Communist Party’s guerillas and the Min Yuen or supporting masses movement. They were forcibly removed from their homes, loaded into trucks and resettled, which initially meant little more than assignment to a particular area of earth on which to rebuild their lives. New villages were behind barbed wire, flood-lit, guarded and under curfew from sundown. All daytime traffic, in and out, was thoroughly searched, for a spoonful of rice concealed in a girl’s bodice, multiplied by thousands, could give sustenance to those in the jungle. These previously scattered rural masses had no longer the potential of a sea in which the guerilla could swim like a fish.
