Malay politics: an exposé

Malay politics: an exposé


Malay politics has never been monolithic, as usually depicted in Chinese-language publications or sources such as news articles or political statements.

Rich in details and meticulously presented, this compilation of 74 op-ed pieces explores the various themes in Malay politics over the last 50 years. In Malay Politics: An Exposé, young scholar and political activist Liew Chin Tong critically examines the careers and contributions of Tun Razak, Ghafar Baba and Harun Idris, amongst others.

The author’s love-hate relationship with Tun Dr. Mahathir sees many pages devoted to this controversial yet towering figure in Malaysian politics. Interesting snippets include Mahathir’s penchant for cars since his early years, confusion over his birth date and the bailout of firms owned by his son Mirzan which eventually led to a showdown between Mahathir and Anwar Ibrahim.

Last but not least, a lacklustre Abdullah Administration has disappointed many who had highly expected him to reform Malaysia.

The author concludes that systemic reform needs systemic change, not piecemeal promises from any one individual.

Here's an idea on how to protest agains the spin-doctoring in Malaysian mainstream print media, which my friend and I came across it in a blog.


Here's the translation and gist of the article:

Time: Main Concourse, Suria KLCC
Date: 1 Jan 2008 (Public Holiday)
Time: 3pm

To do:
1. Go to Suria KLCC Main Concourse on 1 Jan 2008 at 3pm.

2. Bring a copy of local newspaper; it can be The Star, NST, Metro, Malay Mail, Utusan Melayu, Berita Harian, Sin Chew Jit Poh, Nanyang Siang Pow, or any Tamil dailies.

3. At 3.30pm sharp, crumple the newspapers and throw them inside the rubbish bins.


DO NOT LITTER. If the rubbish bins are full, stack your newspapers on top of the pile. If you can’t do that, find other rubbish bins at 1st Floor or other floors. The ultimate goal is to dumb the newspapers collectively as the sign of protest!!
Imagine this: FRUs guarding the rubbish bins, uniformed and plain clothes policemen arresting people for dumbing newspapers into the rubbish bins!
