Item description for The Indonesian Revolution and the Singapore Connection: 1945-1949 by Yong Mun Cheong...
This book explores a phase in the history of both Indonesia and Singapore that is little known. It is a narrative analysis of how the dynamics of the Indonesian revolution (1945-1949) overflowed into Singapore. In turn, Singapore was a base for the Indonesian nationalists, and the British, Dutch, and Chinese traders, with each group exploiting prevailing circumstances for their own interests. Indeed, the author argues that the success of Indonesias struggle against the Dutch was due in no small measure to the opportunities available in Singapore to advance Indonesias strategic aims. The Singapore connection during these years was a vital link.
