Malaysian Historical Society is conscious of the limitations and constraints of our modern reader who have no time and opportunity to glean on heavy or academic writings in history books or journals. ‘Glimpses of Our Merdeka’ would be the answer as the articles are brief without losing the essence of the subject matter. Malaysian Historical Society hopes their readers would be stimulated to seek advanced reading on this momentous period which only occurs once in the history of a nation. “Glimpses of Our Merdeka” contains fourteen articles or essays, nine of which were originally the substance of a series of interviews conducted by Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) in August, 2000 at the Head Office of the Malaysian Historical Society/MHS or Persatuan Sejarah Malaysia/PSM at JKR No. 958, Jalan Hose, Kuala Lumpur.
