May 13, 1969

It is an open secret that our mainstream media in Malaysia don't always report everything accurately. Does this come as a surprise to us? After all the government controls the content of what is reported.

May 13 is a book that tells of the riots that happened in Malaysia on May the 13th, 1969. It draws its facts from recently declassified documents from London's Public Record Office and in it is evidence contrary to what is written in our history books.
At only RM20, it is considered a very cheap book. Last time I checked, Popular doesn't carry it but it seems MPH does. Surprisingly its not banned in Malaysia...yet. I won't dwell much into the details of the book, but I would strongly encourage all thinking Malaysians to get a copy and read what really happened during those difficult times.
