Hussein Onn: A Tryst with Destiny
John Victor Morais
A biography of Malaysia's third Prime Minister, written during his term in office. The author was an indefatigable recorder of the deeds of the great and the good, having written several political biographies and compiled the country's Who's Who for several years. Hussein Onn was known as someone who did not seek the limelight, preferring behind the scenes diplomacy. He was the son of the founder of UMNO, the leading Malay party in the country since independence, and like his father and his two predecessors had a reputation for stressing national unity with little recourse to racially divisive policies.Very Good Hardback in a Very Good Dust Jacket.
