But the Japanese Occupation is a strange time for that to happen, especially when one is preoccupied with graver issues: foraging for food in the jungle, keeping from being brutalised, waiting forjustice to act her peculiar will on one's insufferable neighbours...all this while sporting trousers cut from Mother's rose-patterned saris. Against this tableau of contrariety where the grim and the absurd reside in equal measure, the boy James forms a singular friendship with a captain in the Japanese Army, 'an Englishman trapped in the body of a Japanese. ' In that lies the makings of the profound. "

This study traces the continuing influence of the colonial and post-colonial state policies on contemporary rural development. " ISBN 9971988224; 9971988224

It does however set out to record within the context of Malaysian history, the very important part that Tun Razak played in his country's affairs over a period of twenty-five years from 1951 to 1976. It does not attempt an account of his personal or private life; essentially it is a political biography which places the life of the late Tun Razak within the context of his times--the modern history of Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Another is to examine the work of those humanitarian organizations that the world has created in an attempt to bind its self-inflicted wounds. And a third is to explore a little the extent to which the memory of the ineptly named 'holocaust' has affected our perception and our imagination when hearing distant cries for help.
