Histories – The Malayan Emergency: An American Obsession with Singapore-Malayan History

This talk examines US leaders’ enduring fascination with Britain’s success in the Malayan Emergency. It shows how British and Malayan elites promoted their counterinsurgency tactics to the US, how US leaders sought to emulate and supersede the British Empire, and how US failure to apply Britain’s methods in Vietnam amplified America’s obsession with the Emergency.
