'May 13' book to be launched in KL on Sunday

A new, very bold and certainly ground-breaking book that compiles some of the now declassified documents on the infamous 'racial riot' that broke out on 13 May 1969 in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur is going to be publicly launched on 13 May 2007 (Sunday) at the Selangor-Kuala Lumpur Chinese Assembly Hall. May 13 - Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Racial Riot of 1969 is edited by Dr. Kua Kia Soong (柯嘉逊博士).

Dr. Kua Kia Soong, a UK-trained sociologist, is also a former Opposition Member of Parliament from 1990 to 1995 and also an ISA detainee during the equally infamous Operation Lallang of 1987. He is also the editor of K. Das & The Tunku Tapes (Petaling Jaya, SIRD, 2002). The launching of May 13 - Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riot of 1969 is open to Malaysians of all races and friends of Malaysia of all nations who seek truth and reconciliation.

Can't wait to see the book in the bookshops.
Declassified documents? So these are publically available material, no reason for Lord Zam to suppress it. Still, I won't be surprised if the Neanderthals find a way to stop this book
