Guerrilla Communism in Malaya
Guerrilla Communism in Malaya
By Lucian W. Pye
Princeton University Press, 1956, 369 pp

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."
