The Right to Differ:
A Biographical Sketch of Lim Kit Siang
Ooi Kee Beng
Malaysia managed at the the ballot box to end several decades of government dominated by one party, UMNO, in the middle of 2018. It is unlikely that this could have happened without the contribution of Lim Kit Siang, who has been in politics since the founding of the Democratic Action Party, now a member of the new ruling coalition, in 1966. In this book, based on interviews with the noted political biographer, Ooi Kee Beng, Lim reflects on his imprisonment without trial and generally on the difficulties of expressing opposition views in Malaysia, but also demonstrates his determination to highlight injustice. Very Good Paperback. First Edition. 180 pages with a CD of the interviews in a pocket in the back cover.
