The New Era College controversy which erupted in mid-2008 engulfed the Malaysian Chinese community and the Chinese-language press for the rest of the year. It created unprecedented unity among the staff, students and parents of the college in their resistance to the Dong Jiao Zong (DJZ) leaders who were hell bent on evicting the principal, Dr. Kua Kia Soong. The methods used by these DJZ leaders to undermine the principal included sabotaging their own college by fabricating untruths about its financial management and casting doubts on the recognition of its courses by the ministry. It led to the resignation of many committed and talented professionals from the Chinese education movement.

This expose calls into question the integrity and quality of the characters who are leading the Chinese education movement today. Their agenda in purging activists in the Chinese education movement appears to fall in line with that of the ruling Barisan Nasional's.

The author has been comrade-in-arms of the revered Chinese education leaders Lim Fong Seng and Sim Mow Yu ever since he joined the movement in 1983. His analysis and observations in this book are vital for all those who are interested in the workings and trends of the Malaysian Chinese community. His other writings include 'May 13: Declassified Documents on the Racial Riots of 1969'; 'The Chinese Schools of Malaysia: a Protean Saga'; 'The Malaysian Civil Rights Movement'.
