Power Sharing in a Divided Nation: Mediated Communalism and New Politics in Six Decades of Malaysia's Elections


 Johan Sarvanamuttu

Saravanamuttu, with other collaborators, has already had published several books on individual Malaysian general elections. Here he launches into an all encompassing review of the six decades of elections since independence, focussing particularly on what he calls 'mediated communalism,' i.e. he recognises that Malaysian politics is essentially communal, but that it is softened through a balancing act within the Barisan Nasional (BN), the country's ruling coalition. While analysing its operation, he also notes how it is altering, particularly since the 'landmark' 2008 election when BN lost its two-thirds majority for the first time. 322 pages with a bibliography, index and tables.
