Marina Mahathir continues to make her mark as a community leader, writer and outspoken commentator on social and political affairs. Well-known for standing her ground, she follows in the footsteps of her father, Malaysia's longest-serving prime minister.

In Dancing On Thin Ice, Marina draws attention to the many dangers faced by Malaysia and raises and addresses issues that concern her and her fellow citizens. Subjects that she gets to grips with include:

  • money politics

  • weak leadership

  • educational standards

  • poverty

  • gender inequality

  • touching dogs

  • excessive punishment

  • the need for clean government

  • abuse of power

  • censorship

  • the failure of the war on drugs

  • racism

  • sex crimes

  • lax morality

Along the way she recalls conversations with Nelson Mandela, proposes that Masjid Negara twin with St John's Cathedral, applauds the Malaysians who aid orphans of other faiths and admits to feeling like Alice in Wonderland.

Dancing On Thin Ice showcases Marina's perceptiveness and wit and her willingness to speak up for the vulnerable and defenceless. It also demonstrates her common-sense approach to tackling the challenges that beset right-thinking Malaysians, making the book essential reading for everyone interested in Malaysia and in making it a better place.
