About the Authors
  • This book was first published in 1983: for fourteen years since Malaya's independence in 1957, the external defence of the Malayan (later Malaysian) - Singapore region was provided for within the legal framework of the Anglo-Malaysian Defence Agreement. The external powers involved were Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Kin Wah Chin provides a study of the defence of the region from the perspective of evolving intra-alliance relations within a unique defence system which embraced an anchor power, two associates and two recipients of alliance security.
