The Political Economy of Imperial Relations offers a much needed historical and theoretical intervention into the relationship between Britain and Malaya after the Second World War. It challenges existing accounts and details a strong continuity in this relationship from 1945 until 1960.

Reviews

'This study combines a broad approach to modern imperialism with detailed, archive-based analysis of the Malayan case. By doing so it offers important new insights into the complex relations between financial and political power in the dying days of the formal British Empire' Jim Tomlinson, University of Glasgow, UK

''Accumulate, accumulate! That is Moses and the prophets!', relays Karl Marx in Capital. Alex Sutton reveals new theoretical and historical insights about capital accumulation, the state and class struggle in this fascinating book. It is set to reinvigorate a new wave of contentions within and beyond Marxist understandings of the political economy of imperialism that should be read far and wide.' Adam David Morton, University of Sydney, UK
