No Cowardly Past: James Puthucheary - Writings, Poems, Commentaries (Second Edition)

Edited by Dominic Puthucheary and Jomo K.S


‘Time past and time future are both contained in time present’, wrote James Puthucheary in an honest and provocative letter from prison more than fifty years ago. Informed by a profound understanding of history and convinced by the need to construct a sustainable future for his country, Puthucheary spent a lifetime engaged with the most pressing problems of the day. The new edition of No Cowardly Past brings together some of his most important essays on political economy, the struggle for a progressive politics and the character of university education, as well as his lyrical and pungent poetry. The essays are written in a forthright style that makes his work so accessible and with an unusual candour about the difficulties of transforming a rapidly changing society. Together with half a dozen commentaries that throw light on his personal life, political career, intellectual impact and literary output, No Cowardly Past offers the most comprehensive introduction to one of Malaysia’s greatest public intellectuals. In doing so, it provides compelling evidence of the continuing relevance of Puthucheary’s ideas for a new generation.
