Poetry And The Politics Of History: Revisiting Ee Tiang Hong, Kirpal Singh Dec 2009

Poetry And The Politics Of History: Revisiting Ee Tiang Hong, Kirpal Singh

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

The Malaysian poet Ee Tiang Hong was troubled by the fundamental changes being introduced by the leaders to ensure that Malaysia (which Ee always referred to as Malaya) became centrally a Malay nation. Not only was Ee trying his best to dissociate himself from what he termed the “mimicry of foreign birds” (i.e. the language of the colonial masters) but he was more critically searching for a new idiom which would give freshness to the rendition of the Malayan experience. While this struggle was in process, the tragedy of May 13 (1969) struck: here was a blatant illustration of ...


Review Of Stansky, Peter, The First Day Of The Blitz: September 7, 1940., James V. Koch Oct 2009

Review Of Stansky, Peter, The First Day Of The Blitz: September 7, 1940., James V. Koch

Economics Faculty Publications

(First Paragraph) Was fall 1940 truly Britain's "finest hour," as Winston Churchill memorably suggested? More particularly, are time-honored stories of stiff-lipped Londoners refusing to buckle under the onslaught of the Luftwaffe on the first day of the Blitz (September 7, 1940) myth or reality? These are the questions Peter Stansky addresses in this well-written, occasionally almost sentimental, essay. He concludes ultimately that the popular version of Blitz history substantially reflects reality, but nevertheless contains many elements of heroic, comforting, and somewhat off-target mythology.

Review Of Sebag-Montefiore, Hugh, Dunkirk: Fight To The Last Man, James V. Koch May 2009

Review Of Sebag-Montefiore, Hugh, Dunkirk: Fight To The Last Man, James V. Koch

Economics Faculty Publications

(First Paragraph) Hugh Sebag-Montefiore correctly notes that multitudes of books already have been written about the evacuation of the British and French troops from Dunkirk in May and June 1940. He argues, however, that these accounts generally have neglected the crucial role of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in making this escape possible. He agrees that great credit must go to Adm. Bertram Ramsay, the Royal Navy, and almost one thousand small boat owners who actually moved the beleaguered troops from France to England. Nevertheless, he asserts, without the BEF, there would have been no evacuation, or at least a ...

Why The Solidarity?: South Asian Activism For Palestine, Rajini Srikanth

In the essay "Why the Solidarity? South Asian Activism for Palestine," Srikanth offers some reasons for the compelling hold of the Palestinian cause on South Asian academics and activists. Referring to India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in particular, she discusses the extent to which the colonial and neocolonial experiences of these three nations parallel life under Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people. The essay also traces Srikanth's own personal journey of coming into consciousness about Palestine and ties this personal awakening to her role as a teacher.
