About this title


Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Prime Minister of Malaysia since 1981, is one of Asia's most successful politicians. Once feared by some as an ideologue of state intervention to restructure Malaysian society, Mahathir is now admired by many for his vision of industrializing his nation into Asia's 'fifth tiger.'
Paradoxes of Mahathirism is the first full-length scholarly examination of the enigma of Mahathir. As a study of political ideology, it explores Mahathir's ideas on nationalism, capitalism, Islam, populism, and authoritarianism--the core of Mahathirism. Within the context of Malaysia's recent political history, it charts the evolution of Mahathir's complex world-view to reveal paradoxes, alternating patterns of consistency and contradiction, which help us understand his politics, policies, and personality.


"The scholarship is thorough and comprehensive with a writing style that is crisp and lucid. The book should appeal to a wide public readership and be of special interest to area specialists. It is a very worthy addition to a large and growing shelf of excellent works on Malaysian politics and public policy issues. The volume deserves to be in all research libraries covering the Asia-Pacific region."--American Historical Review
