Abstract : Malaya is one of seven nations selected to provide a data base for analysis of the factors which lead to low intensity conflict and loss of Government control. Study of the preconflict period, defined for research purposes as 1930-48, was conducted on an interdisciplinary basis, examining political, economic, sociological, psychological, public health, scientific-technological, and military aspects of the period. For purposes of this study, the unqualified term Malaya (originally coined by the British) is used for convenience to include the 11 Malay states on the Malay (or Kra) Peninsula of Southeast Asia, which comprised the Federation of Malaya at the end of the preconflict period, plus the British Crown Colony of Singapore (an island joined to the mainland by a causeway). This combined area was never a political unit, but it all contributed to the situation under study.
