Malaysia:

A New Civil Society in the Making

-----

Tan Jun-E and Zawawi Ibrahim

New. As in many countries where the traditional print media don't find themselves able to give voice to political diversity, the alternative voice in Malaysia has turned to the electronic media, particularly the internet. In Malaysia's 12th general election in 2008 bloggers were believed to have played an influential role in weakening the hold on the country of the Government party which had ruled for more than 50 years. We're fortunate that the authors started their research as to who the bloggers were and the effect of their efforts more than a year before that election. The contents of the book's 153 pages include

  • 1 - Introducing Blogs,
  • 2 - Democracy and Media Freedom in Malaysia,
  • 3 - The Malaysian Blogosphere,
  • 4 - The People behind Blogs,
  • 5 - Blogs and Malaysian Civil Society,
  • 6 - Government Clampdown on Bloggers, 7 - Conclusion &
  • 8 - Postscript: Rethinking Blogging and the 12th Malaysian 2008 General Election.
  • There are three appendices, including one outlining the research methodology for the book, several figures, tables and boxes and a bibliography.
