Although Cold War propaganda is now the subject of close scholarly scrutiny, the main method by which it was communicated - language - has been overlooked. The Malayan Emergency illustrates how the British government grappled with the issue of political terminology within the broader context of anti-communist propaganda. This article will analyse the use of political language; the change from 'bandit' to 'communist terrorist'; and the problems of delineating the Malayan from the international audience.
