"Political Awakening" will be a useful primer to anyone interested in the political developments in Malaysia leading to Independence and the aftermath.

Nationalist and anti-colonial movements have played a vital role in the political awakening of indigenous populations in many Third World nations. This is certainly true of multi-racial Malaysia which now boasts of one of the highest per capita incomes in Southeast Asia.

In this book, the Tunku discusses the problems and difficulties faced by the party since its successful opposition to the Malayan Union proposals in 1946 and the subsequent inauguration of the Federation of Malaya Agreement in 1948.
