About This Book

In this piece of writing based on oral history, we get a glimpse of Perumal, the communist fighter who was a legend among working class communities in especially but not only the plantations of Sg Siput. Kaatu Perumal was the champion of oppressed rubber estate workers, meeting out rough justice to the planters and police during the repressive days of British colonial rule. The role of fighters like Perumal in the anti-colonial struggle has been completely suppressed in the official history of Malaysia. Dave Anthony's Kaatu Perumal then is a valuable contribution to the writing of the genuine history of the struggle for independence.
