When Malaysia achieved independence in 1957, many predicted that the country would never be stable or prosper economically. In these five essays, the Malaysian Prime Minister reflects on the successes and failures of government policy since independence. In particular, he identifies the way in which the New Economic Policy has, after some early problems and setbacks, ensured that the benefits of economic prosperity have not been confined to a small and sophisticated section of the elite, but have instead been widely shared among the Malaysian people.

When Malaysia achieved independence in 1957, many people predicted that the country, with its unique racial mix, could never be stable or prosper economically. Forty years later, Malaysia, one of the tiger economics of South East Asia, has made enviable economic progress, bringing in its wake a degree of racial harmony that has confounded the Sceptics. The principal architect of Malaysia's transformation is the country's fourth prime minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. In the five essays that comprise "The Way Forward", Dr. Mahathir Mohamad reflects on the successes and failures of the New Economic Policy (1971-1990), the central element in governmental policy since the racial troubles of May 1969.
