Guerrilla Communism in Malaya

By Lucian W. Pye
Princeton University Press, 1956
369 pp. $6.00

An excellent study, based in part on extensive interviews with former Malayan Communist Party members, of the nature, organization and appeals of "People's Liberation" Communism--an exceptionally dynamic and impetuous manifestation of the movement, finding its attraction in the less industrial areas of the world. As the author says, "It is possible to distinguish different types of Communist Parties without denying in the slightest the monolithic ambitions of Communism as a whole."
