Synopsis:

This book tells the story of the Hakka Chinese in Sarawak, Malaysia, who were targeted as communists or communist sympathizers because of their Chinese ethnicity the 1960s and 1970s. Thousands of these rural Hakkas were relocated into ?new villages? surrounded by barbed wire or detained at correction centres, where incarcerated people were understood to be ?sacrificial gifts? to the war on communism and to the rule of Malaysia?s judicial-administrative regime.

The Hakkas of Sarawak looks at how these incarcerated people struggled for survival and dealt with their defeat over the course of a generation. Using methodologies of narrative theory and exchange theory, Kee Howe Yong provides a powerful account of the ongoing legacies of Cold War oppression and its impact on the lives of people who were victimized by these policies.

About the Author: Kee Howe Yong is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at McMaster University.

Book Description University of Toronto Press, 2013. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "This book makes a significant and important contribution to the anthropology of history and collective memory. In moving prose, Kee Howe Yong provides a deeply insightful portrayal of the everyday lives of these Chinese workers and the imbrications of their memories of their communist past within their quotidian experiences of an oppressive present. No other work so sympathetically engages with the whole theme of how the memorialization of a past marked by violence and group persecution occurs in the case of contemporary Chinese in Malaysia.".
