Malaysian Maverick: 

Mahathir Mohamad in Turbulent Times


 Barry Wain


A former editor of the Asian Wall Street Journal attempts to make an assessment of Mahathir Mohamad's first period as premier of Malaysia. While developing one of the world's more successful economies Mahathir also 'encouraged cronyism and failed to prevent the spread of corruption.'  Wain tries hard to keep a balance when describing the career of such a divisive character, although he fears for the country's future following Mahathir's weakening of many of the country's vital institutions to serve his ends. A well researched book.  Very Good Hardback. First Edition 363 pages with an index.
