This is Tiang doing what he does best. More so than provoke, his novel makes an admirably human attempt to translate lived experience into fiction and nudge its way towards a sympathetic understanding. State Of Emergency is a compelling, important piece of work from one of Singapore's finest living authors. --Toh Wen Li, The Straits Times

My father lived and worked pre war and after prisoner of war time afterwards as an employee of an engineering company .
All European and Australiaans domociled in those countries whether in government employ or company or as professionals were only in those countries as long as their contract lasted and at the termination of that agreement would leave! The British government saved Malaya for the Malays by destroying Chinese communist influence by force during The Emergency something I witnessed personally as a young person caught up in the times!
