Malaysian Economics and Politics in the New Century
Colin Barlow, Francis Kok-Wah Loh
Edward Elgar, Jan 1, 2003 - Political Science - 206 pages
Malaysia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world today, and this book reflects current debates about the future directions of the national economy, polity and society in light of the late 1900s watershed period of financial crisis, the arrest of Anwar Ibrahim and the subsequent 1999 general election. Malaysian Economics and Politics in the New Century aims to answer questions about how the economy and society are organized, about how the benefits from economic development are distributed, about government's relations to major national institutions, and about the nature of the political process.
