2. ILLUSIONS OF DEMOCRACY: MALAYSIAN POLITICS AND PEOPLE VOLUME II
About the Book
‘This timely book centres on one of the Malaysian nation-state’s weakest spots: its peculiar construction and treatment of minorities. As different visions compete over how a “New Malaysia” should (not) look like, this rich collection of essays elucidates how various exclusions and inequalities have historically evolved, where we stand now, one year after the downfall of UMNO/BN’s “eternal government”, and in which directions Malaysia’s future political culture might be heading in.’
