A Question of Class: Capital, the State and Uneven Development in Malaya
Jomo Kwame Sundaram
In order to give context to and evaluate the Malaysian Government's New Economic Policy (NEP), adopted in 1971, one of Malaysia's leading economists reviews the country's economic history from the mid-19th century until the advent of the NEP. This review of the country's economic development was, and still is, unusual in that its emphasis is more on the development and changes in class structures rather than in ethnic relations between the participants in Malaysia's economy. 360 pages with tables, figures, a bibliography and an index.
